Even with finals, Goldman Students made time for fun.
The Admissions Team will be checking e-mail intermittently between Monday, December 22, 2014 - Friday, January 2, 2015, and there will be a delay in response times. We will be back in the office on Monday, January 5, 2015. We appreciate your patience during this busy time, and wish you a wonderful holiday season!
"How does the Admissions Committee handle multiple GRE test scores? Are the highest taken from each test date? Are the scores averaged? Or, does the Committee look for improvement from one test date to the next?"
Any GRE scores sent to Berkeley will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee will note any improvement from one test to another. Alternatively, if there is a significant decline in your scores, that will also be observed. Scores are not averaged, and we will consider higher section scores that come from two different test dates.
"I am applying to the MPP program for Fall 2015. I recently received my IELTS results but I am not sure how should I send the official report. Is it possible to send the results electronically or is it necessary to send a hard copy to your office before December 2?"
Unlike TOEFL scores, IELTS scores are not received electronically. Applicants who take the IELTS must submit the original Test Report Form to:
Richard & Rhoda Goldman School of Public Policy
