5 reasons to take the GRE even if it’s optional

Admissions is a competitive process, and your application speaks for you when you’re not in the room. Will it tell admissions committees that you’ve done everything you can to prepare yourself for success? Learn how the GRE can help you best represent yourself, and how our resources can help you prepare with confidence.

  • Give yourself a competitive edge

Grad programs want to know why you deserve a spot over someone else and whether you’re driven to succeed. Submitting GRE scores shows that you’re serious about grad school — and, by extension, that you’re more serious than those who didn’t submit scores.

  • Leave no questions on the table

Admissions committees are motivated to minimize risk because students who drop out cost the school time and money. So, the more information on your application, the better. Don’t make them question if you have what it takes — show off your best self.

  • Prove to yourself that you’re ready

Grad school is a huge investment of time and money, and the expectations are higher than in undergrad. Before you invest, make sure you know you have what it takes. As a measure of graduate readiness, GRE scores can help you feel confident that you’re making a smart investment.

  • Prepare for your program

Tests can be scary. We get it. But you’re going to have to take tests in grad school, so why not get warmed up now? Our free and low-cost prep tools can help you get started. The more time you spend prepping, the easier it will become, and the more confident you’ll be.

  • Set yourself up for opportunities

GRE scores are good for 5 years. So not only can they help you access scholarships, fellowships, loans and teaching assistantships now, they can help you in the future too. Want to switch programs or pursue another degree? You can without taking another test!
