Changes coming to GRE and LSAT tests

Students planning to apply for graduate or law school may want to review the coming changes to the standardized tests used for admissions.

The Minnesota Daily reports that

According to the Educational Testing Service, the Graduate Record Examination will become hours longer starting September 2007. The Law School Admission Test writing section will be more predictable and thus easier to prepare for as of June 2007, according to the Law School Admission Council.

An administrator quoted in the article recommends that students who will need to take the GRE in order to apply for graduate school (not all graduate programs require the test) do so now, as the scores will be good for five years, rather than taking the newer longer test.
