List of schools that offer a joint degree without GRE/GMAT

Postby sach1282 » Mon Oct 17, 2011 9:52 am

I've been looking for this for a while. I know that Duke's joint degrees are very accessable, but does anyone know of any other schools with options for joint degrees without taking the GRE or GMAT?

No, but at least for the GRE, I'd be very surprised if you found it a tenth as taxing as the LSAT. my cold GRE was 99th% (math section, which I was worried about, was absurdly easy). My cold LSAT was like, 60th%. Might as well just take it.

Yeah, those tests are supposedly a ton easier, especially after having studied for the LSAT. So unless difficulty isn't the reason you don't want to take it, I wouldn't be too concerned

Most of the JD/Master's programs at Michigan will let you use your LSAT score in lieu of a GRE score.

GRE yes, GMAT no. If you haven't had a math course recently and don't understand complex algebra the GMAT's math section is really tough.
GMAT verbal is easy, however.

What schools are you interested in? That would be an easier way to look at this.

From what I've seen, I think your best bet is to just send a quick email to any of your favorites and ask their admissions people. Though for the most part, school ranked in the T20 require seperate admissions and seperate scores.

I am interested in this too. MSWs and LLMs for the most part don't require GRE/GMAT. Also, you can just spend a year abroad in a UK school and get a MS/MA in a year without having to take the GRE or GMAT. Other than that I think most schools require the GRE and GMAT. Look at the joint degree websites for each school.
