For test requirements, should I take the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or the GRE?

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is preferred and recommended for applicants to the program (see Testing); however we will accept the GRE general test.  Testing should be scheduled before or soon after the application deadline (scores will be emailed to the Graduate School from the Testing Center).  Previous test scores must be current within the past 5 years; no test scores are required if the applicant holds an advanced degree.
