min Test month for Fall admission

Postby matter » Tue Oct 06, 2009 1:03 am

I am going to be taking the test this Sat, though I am considering rescheduling because a long illness cut a month out of my limited study time. What was the recommended test month for fall admission? Is Novemeber too late?

Most top math programs have an admission deadline in mid-December, so yes, November test is too late for those programs.

No that is incorrect. The universities are aware of this delay and they are reluctant because its ETS's "fault".

Just to toss in my two pents:

If you are applying to a program with a mid Dec deadline, then let them know you are sitting for the Nov. exam and the score results should be in around the same time.

It is my understanding that most programs are fine with this.
