A philosophy student with an MA/MPhil degree from a university in Europe writes:
So there's two issues here: are their PhD programs that do not require the GRE? And are there PhD programs that waive the GRE requirement in special circumstances? Readers? Posts can be unsigned if they link to an official website with information, otherwise they should be signed.
Are there PhD programs in the US that wave the GRE requirement for people with a MA or MPhil (apart from MIT)?
After a philosophy-only BA and a two-year MPhil in philosophy, can't conferences, publications and the like be better evidence than the GRE for graduate-level work in philosophy??
Apart from the cost, I think the time spent "studying" for the GRE (i) could be better used studying and doing philosophy or related matters; (b) could discourage (at least some) European applicants.
