Taking the GRE in Korea

If you’re in the process of applying for graduate school, you’ll likely need to take the GRE if you haven’t done so already. On the ETS website, you can choose a test date and register for the test. You should sign-up early to guarantee a seat on a specific test date. The tests are not offered every day, and there aren’t many dates to choose from!

If, like me, you don’t live in Seoul, you’ll have to make a day (or two-day) trip to the big city. My test date was on a Sunday morning. I arrived in Seoul the morning of Saturday, went shopping, and relaxed at my hotel room. The testing location was on the second floor of the Fulbright Building (KAEC – STN13681A) in Mapo-gu. I had no idea what to expect going in, so here’s some handy information that might help you out.
