Let's GRE Together

Let's GRE Together with Academic Commons

Study for the GRE together!

Are you planning to apply to graduate or doctoral programs December 2019 and want to take the GRE this fall?

Join a free cohort of students and alumni who are studying for the GRE.

The cohort will meet weekly to study and take two proctored practice exams together. The cohort will support itself through group collaboration and accountability in studying, planning, and successfully completing the GRE. Academic Commons staff will lead specific practice sessions on quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing.

Any member of the GW community may take the practice exams (sign up).

The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is a standardized test used for admissions requirement for most graduate and doctorate programs in the United States.
