  1. Hello HSB,

    I have recently registered for passing GRE in August, I have already passed the TOEFL.. From my point of view GRE's website has less user-friendly interface than the same TOEFL provides. I wonder about choosing universities to submit results.

    GRE wed site does not provide the same functionality for choosing universities as TOEFL web site has, doesn't it?
    I am just able to choose universities after completing the test and I do not have ability to choose universities in advance, am I right?

    In case if I am right, how can I find universities and departments codes? Or majority of universities mention their code on web pages?

  2. this is really nice article but for how many universities can one apply after taking the GRE? is there any limit.. please reply
