  1. i advise you to ask those universities whether they will accept late reports or not. Most of them will allow you to complete the application in a week or 2 after the deadline. Good Luck!
  2. The test is section-adaptive not question-adaptive, so the difficulty level of each section will be determined by how well you performed on the previous section.
  3. yes, i heard some ppl talking about this issue. It happened because of what you chose when registering for the GRE
  4. Hey, If you're looking for available internships, there is a website for this purpose: http://linguistlist.org/internship/ Hope it helps!
  5. some of my friends had the same experience, but at the end, their scores weren't competitive, and they didn't get in
  6. There is another thread with the same content here:
  7. In addition, all the word lists you need to know is available via QUIZLET for free. Good Luck!
  8. I had the same experience with a great professor who replied to me immediately, and encouraged me to apply, although she mentioned that it's a competitive school to apply. I've also had no replies from so many schools, and some even emphasized that the committee will decide which student will be accepted. No Canadian professor replied to me till now, even though they are literally persuading the students to find a supervisor before applying. All i can think of is that the process of accepting students in linguistics differ from other majors which fund students through their own projects, and there is no departmental funding available. comments will be appreciated
  9. Hey, There is a great extension for Chrome called pervasive GRE. Whenever you visit a website, clicking on it will highlight all the GRE words (those in Barron's) on that page: "Pervasive GRE searches a webpage, and highlights words in the Barron's GRE 4,579 Word list, adding tool tips contain relevant definitions". Good Luck!
  10. Hey, You can only reschedule to dates available.
  11. I have seen in many different rankings that the quant score is taken into account for ranking different universities against each other, and i doubt it has no effect on adcoms. take a look at this website: http://graduate-school.phds.org/rankings/linguistics/program/ranking/umass/5586
  12. There are some schools which offer funding from the second semester, or even the second year, and as an international student, i know many people getting into a school without funding, but after showing their potential at the first semester, they were able to get funding for the second semester on.
  13. you cannot choose sections of different tests to report, but there are some universities which take into account only your highest scores in each section if you have taken the test more than once
  14. Some universities specifically mention not to send any GRE score. UCLA linguistics department: Please note that the GRE is NOT required for admission to our program. Please do not submit GRE score reports to us, as they will not be considered.
