I registered for the GRE today, and 5 minutes later something came up, so I have to completely cancel the test. I called ETS - they say they can only give a 50% refund.
What??? I could not get any logical answer as to why they need a refund processing fee of 50%. That's just an insanely exorbitant charge for a service that I have not even rendered! ETS is supposedly a nonprofit organization - ridiculous!
The organization's earnings are really high! When is the government going to step in and do something about this fraud/scam? The fee is steep to begin with, and especially if you're from a developing nation, but how else are they going to maintain their exorbitant executive compensation?
I totally understand why a movement such as Americans for Educational Testing Reform (AETR) has emerged.
