If you are pursuing entrance to an American graduate or professional school, or even are thinking about it, GraduateTestScores will provide you expert information and analysis to help you make your decision.
Once you sign up, GraduateTestScores takes the information you voluntarily provide and aggregates it with that of others applying to the same programs. By doing so, you will then be able to see how you stack up against other applicants. You will also be able to see how you compare to applicants from previous admission cycles.
GraduateTestScores reaches all types of American graduate and professional schools. Those applying for degrees in Medical, Law, Business, or Graduate schools can use GraduateTestScores to their advantage.
For previous cycles, we have used public data provided by lsac.org, individual school admissions offices, aamc.org, US News and World Report, and personal experience. For current cycles, data points are generated from the profiles of people like you who use GraduateTestScores to get the best information possible for their admissions decisions.
Absolutely. You may volunteer whatever information you would like to be used on the GraduateTestScores website through your profile, and while other users will be able to see this information, they will have NO access to your identity or ability to contact you outside of GraduateTestScores. There is no traceability to your identity.
Every bit of information you submit benefits you and the community at large. The more you include, the better the information we can provide to everyone. While it is your decision to include whatever information you'd like, we'd encourage you to be as honest and forthright as you can, for the sake of everyone. If people do not submit complete profiles, we are unable to generate the complete story for you.
