GRE waivers - take it or not?


Recommended Posts

Hi there. Some PhD programs that I'm looking into offer a general GRE waiver if the applicant has already obtained a masters degree (with a sufficiently high GPA). If these cases, is it a good idea to take the waiver? Or is it better to CYA and submit the GRE scores anyways (I guess to prove that you don't have anything to hide)?

Did you already take the GRE and do well? If so, there's probably no harm in submitting them, since sending the score reports aren't very expensive and it might show a strength. But if you didn't take it, or you took it and didn't do really well (e.g. Some people are bad test takers), then I probably would take the waiver? I've never been in that situation, but that's prob what I'd do :)
