The Dreaded GRE

If you’re planning on going to graduate school, you may need to take the GRE (Graduate Record Exam). It’s the most commonly required admission test for grad school. Much like the SAT and ACT, the GRE exam is a broad assessment of your critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills. MFA programs in the visual arts may not require you to take the GRE, but graduate programs in art history, arts administration, and museum and library studies usually do.
