  1. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I think I would be able to arrange a reasonable amount of time to study again for this test and retake it. The two schools that I put on my free recipient list are unfortunately my dream schools so I think it is kind of necessary to show them everything I've got. Even though one of them does not require the test, I think having a bad score would still somewhat weaken my application. That being said, I totally agree with what you said about making a better use of my time, but if I don't fix this potentially harmful component of my application, I will feel somewhat unsettled and might even attribute future losses to this one component. Also, how did you get them to tell you if they considered your PSYC GRE score or not? Did that happen after the rejection? Again, I truly appreciate your reply.
  2. Can you maybe share some of your test prep tips? I I ´╗┐used the Kaplan prep book and read through my intro to psyc textbook. I wasn't able to find many studying material for this particular test, and everyone seems to have different opinions about which test prep book out there is the most comprehensive. If you could share your experience with me, I'd very much appreciate it!
  3. Thank you for your advice. I think I will retake the test. I did study very hard for this test, but I also didn't sleep well the night before the test. In fact, I wasn't able to sleep at all, which might be caused by my test anxiety. I def need to work on that as well. Can you suggest some good ways to study for this test? I used the Kaplan prep book and read through my intro to psyc textbook. I also made sure I knew enough of every topic that is listed on the official guide. Although I have to admit that I was a bit rushing a week before the exam. I signed up for the test back in November, and I procrastinated studying for it till 2 weeks before the exam. To be honest, I think this test is completely based on memorization, so would studying in advance really help?
  4. Hi Everyone, So I took my psyc subject test in April and found out about the score this morning. It was pretty bad to be honest. I know the percentile is whats it matters, and 68% is still very bad. I also forgot to cancel my free score recipients before the test so some schools (sadly, some of my dream schools), would get this bad score. However, I see that I still have time to retake this test in Oct, but I don't know if I should, given the fact that those schools will receive this first score either way. I am planning to apply to clinical psychology programs, and I know the application review is holistic. But I am very worried that having this bad score could negatively impact my application, more so than not sending it entirely. I guess my questions is, for the schools I already sent the score to, should I retake the test to make up for the first test? I majored in psychology and statistics in undergrad. My psyc GPA is 3.9. I am working full time as a research assistant right now, with a thesis and some conference presentations listed on my resume. I would really like to get some opinions on this. Thank you guys so much in advance!
