Re: [plumagemour] institution/ dept codes?
[In reply to]
actually i put johns hopkins after taking my gre test. and as far as i know there were no code options, we just picked the schools and programs through a list. even so, they wouldn't even let me take in a light jacket into the testing room, much less a piece of paper with all the correct codes.
is there any way for meto view the schools and departments i pick during the test day online without having to call them?
also is there a form on their website that i can fill out to mail in my request?that 6 dollar fee is ridiculous, especially considering i only have 1 more school to send the scores to
This was my experience as well, as far as entering the four destinations for the free reports after the test: no numerical codes involved. Now that I think about it, I can't even be sure if those were sent to the proper place despite all the time that process took; some voice in the back of my head was nagging me about being even more careful with that part than with the actual GRE, but I was tired of the whole thing by then and I'm sure I found a way to screw it up. Ah, well. I was going to have to use at least three extra score reports anyway. I guess four more isn't that big a deal, for the opportunity to make sure everything ends up where it's supposed to be.
After all this, I really do hope that if--a colossal if, at this point--I do get into a program, it ends up being one of the ones that does ask for GRE scores as part of the application process. I don't even care if it's the most cursory of glances at the score report. I know, it's a petty thing to ask, but I want to know that taking that exam was good for *something.*
