  1. Hi sjoh197, Not terrible, just not as high as I would like. V: 156 or 157, can't remember Q: 150
  2. Thank you very much for the reply. That makes me feel much better!
  3. Hello everyone, I am wanting to get into a certain graduate school program that swears they do not care about the GRE. That is, on the application requirement list, it says you can report GRE scores if you want to, and that is it. It does not even say it is recommended. It seems they are more concerned about letters of rec, GPA and a creative personal statement. I took the GRE recently, and to be honest, I would not want to report the scores anyway. I am a good student but a bad test taker. I have a 3.7/4.0, teaching experience, and research under by belt. My real question is this: when a university says they do not care about the GRE, are they telling the truth? Is there any point in me taking the test again? The only reason I paid to take it the first time is because I did not know where I was interested in attending. But I thought since I had already paid for it I may as well take it. The degree is for chemical education. Thanks for the time.

  5. Thank you so much. That encourages me!
  6. Hello, First of all, I am thankful this forum exists. The whole graduate school process can be stressful and I'm glad to see others going through a similar experience. Here is my question: I am taking the GRE in less than 2 weeks. I am satisfied with my verbal scores on practice exams, but I need to improve my quant score. It's the timing that stresses me in quant. I have purchased the Kaplan prep book as the the 5lb book of practice problems to refresh my skills. I did very well as far as correct/incorrect; however, my math scores on my practice exam still hover consistently around 150. I know I need to practice on timing. Should I just work 20 problems in 35 minutes repeatedly for the next two weeks or is there a better way? I do not think it is the math that is the problem...it is stressing over time and spending too much time on a single problem. Thanks for the help in advance.
