Spotlight on Goals and Supporting Practices
As part of a research effort to learn more about graduate admissions practices and holistic file review, ETS and the GRE® Program, with the support of the GRE® Board, interviewed faculty and staff involved in admissions at 58 programs across the United States.
As interview participants reflected on their experience, many said that the interview and discussion prompted them to consider issues they hadn’t before. In response, ETS created a framework of questions to help guide faculty and administrators at institutions like yours who are interested in having thoughtful engagement about graduate admissions practices on their own campuses.
