Why doesn't Wagner require the GRE or GMAT?

« Go Back



While moderately predictive of academic performance (which is important to us), we believe that these standardized tests are less useful in helping identify individuals who will be successful in a career of public service and a potential leader in the health field. Many schools are moving away from these tests, relying more on undergraduate performance, work experience, recommendations, and the applicant's personal statement.

For students with lower undergraduate GPAs, or who have not taken or performed poorly in quantitative courses, or who have no prior background in social science or other relevant courses, GRE or GMAT is strongly recommended to strengthen your application. Other applicants may also submit scores which will be considered, as appropriate, in the admission decision process.
