ETS last minute cancellation?

Postby clloyd » Fri Oct 23, 2015 9:19 pm

Did this happen to anyone else?

Thank you,

It was sent right before closing (4:45PM EST) from the email address gre-info@ets.org, which is an email address I have never received emails from before.

It seems pretty fishy to me... if it isn't fake It's pretty unprofessional. What do you guys think?

Well that email address actually belongs to ETS from a google search. That sucks though. Maybe try to go there tomorrow? It's hard to reach them since they're closed at the time being.

Indeed, it is unprofessional. It's neither the first nor the last time ETS has been such.

Update.. the exam was indeed cancelled. When I arrived at the testing location they had just plastered signs everywhere saying "ETS cancelled the GRE". Some of these signs were even upside down!

Pretty crazy! I hope the test went well for everyone who actually got to take it!

Somewhat related: I met a guy at my test today who said his test was cancelled some time in the last few weeks. He arranged for a new location and took it as a standby today. More importantly, ETS did NOT refund him. So he had to pay ~$400 to take the test. He said they have a no-refund policy in their fine print.
