In just a few minutes, I’m going to head downtown to hear a presentation on the new GRE format that will be introduced in August. I hope to return from the meeting with a handle on how this will all play out, and I’ll share the details with the rest of the staff.
This year’s applicants don’t need to think (or even know) about what’s coming. From what ETS is saying, next year’s applicants will want to decide whether to take the exam in its current format or to wait until the new format is rolled out. One thing we can already tell you — Fletcher will accept scores from either format, and we will continue to accept scores from the current format for as long as you can arrange an official score report.
