Since a lot of people have been commenting about Chinese cheating thing, I would like to comment on that.
I would say it's more a problem with the ETS then with anyone else. THEY SHOULD NOT BE REUSING ANY OF THE OLD TESTS AT ALL.
why ETS is a SCAM and GRE tests useless:
1. I read somewhere that ETS says that since somehow it takes them $300,000 approx to write a test they have to recycle the test questions. Maybe I and some 10 odd senior UG's could write the MGRE for $100 each.
2. They charge you $12 (as i remember from 10 mins back) for an automated 1 min (max) message giving out your MGRE/GRE score.
3. I and others have paid $165 (GRE) + $140 (MGRE) + $165 (TOEFL, though i don't feel i need to give the TOEFL) for the tests that don't measure your graduate school potential in any way. I got pretty high SAT (2060) and GRE (1450), which i assume that most people believe measures college/gschool potential. This is bullshit. i am a slightly above average student and i have seen mannnny students getting lower SAT and GRE scores who have done waayyyyy better in college than me.
I went to some website (I can't find it now) which mentioned that ETS has been paying its 30 something shareholders $30,000+ a year. it pays $300,000+ to its board of directors and $800,000+ to its CEO. It's pretty hard to understand this since they are supposed to be NON-PROFIT. There are lawsuits against them in this regard to remove the non-profit tag that they have on them.
Back to the Chinese student thing: Since the ETS charges such exorbitant fees from the test takers (and is such a great thug) they should at least be making new tests every single time. They can just take some money off from the "modest" salaries and bonus of directors of their "non-profit" company. We can't blame the chinese students for getting a cheating oppurtunity that we don't have.
