Would there be any hope in applying to a doctoral STEM program (geared toward EE) in the US without the GRE?
Simply put, there are no test centers offering the GRE in my country, for this year and the upcoming one. In other words, my potential applications for fall 2021 are essentially ruined. And I can unfortunately not afford going elsewhere to take it.
Should I apply without it and take the risk of having my application rejected right from the outset?
I sincerely hope the GRE will be abolished once and for all, for it serves only private interests. It is such a financial hurdle for those living in low-income countries.
Any advice or suggestion is more than welcomed.
