It just ain't right...

I volunteered to help with an event coming up that will pay for PhD applicants from underrepresented groups to come spend a few days checking out our program in the hope that they'll apply. Somehow I ended up on the team evaluating the 28+ people who're applying to attend this thing, and one of the criteria I'm evaluating is their GRE scores.

Let me repeat...I'm evaluating these poor folk's GRE scores when I myself *refused*, yes, *refused* to repeat the test-taking process. This doesn't seem fair.
