Based on the current literature it is clear the general Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is biased against women and minorities and also lacks any predictive value. We support dropping the use of the GRE in applications and review of applicants to STEM graduate programs. To this end, we participate in the efforts to remove GRE requirements at all graduate programs in STEM. The NSF has dropped the use of the GREs from consideration of the NSF GRFP application and NIH has dropped the GRE from both T-32 and F-31 fellowship applications. A running list (GRExit) of all the graduate (MS & PhD) programs who have dropped the GRE requirement is available below.
