A Candle in the Dark

A look on science, politics, religion and events

It is finished

I am finally done with all my graduate school applications. Now comes the long wait.

One thing that’s very clear to me now, is that ETS is an evil organization which uses its monopoly to squeeze out as much money as it can from prospective graduate students.

Why is there a need to pay 20$ per university whenever I need to send my scores? It would be faster, and easier, if they simply have an electronic database with the scores, and allow the graduate admissions office access to the details of the scores through the internet. Also, 12$ dollars just to find out how I did in the test? That is ridiculous.

Anyway, to all my fellow undergrad students who’ve applied, best of luck!

  1. Thanks and ATB to you too!

    The TOEFL branch of ETS is relatively tolerable ($17 per report and free checking of scores), it’s only the GRE(ED) guys who leave a bad taste in your mouth.
