Subject: Importance of GRE
So that I may give the best possible advice to prospective graduate
students, I ask that anyone who has opinions about the importance of the
GRE to admission to strong graduate programs please communicate these
opinions to me privately. In particular, I am often asked how heavily
the GRE is weighed against other factors such as writing samples,
letters of recommendation, undergraduate transcripts, awards or
recognitions, conference presentations or publications, etc.
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to share his/her thoughts on this
With best wishes,
