  1. I went on the ETS website to sign up for the English Lit subject test in October but could only find available test dates in April. Do the testing centers really fill up this fast? I had no idea this was an issue ? Unfortunately ETS's customer service is closed until Monday, so it'd be great to get an answer on here, if anyone knows! Thanks in advance!
  2. It has been my impression that the GRE Lit Subject test has been slowly falling out of fashion. Despite that, we still have to play the game, don't we? From what I've seen, very few schools require it. Does anyone have a list of the schools that do? When I applied to UVA for my Masters, they accepted me without receiving my score, but since they technically required it, I needed to send my score anyway for administrative purposes. That sent a message to me: "We require this, but it is not that important." That being said, my score was...uh, not very good. I feel compelled to retake it before I apply for PhDs next cycle. But at the same time...maybe my poor score doesn't matter that much? Maybe it's just a formality? We know it's the writing and personal statement that stand out more to committees, but then why should we even bother? What are others' perspective on the importance of the Lit test? What were the best ways to prepare? How long did you study? Did you rely mostly on coursework/background, or additional study materials? Perhaps it would be more beneficial to have a separate thread for listing programs that require it, but I thought I'd give this a shot first.
  3. I recently graduated with a physics degree and plan on applying to PhD's in computational neuroscience. I've only taken four semesters of mathematics (Calc III-IV, Diff Eq I-II) in college so I'm worried that I'm not prepared mathematically. Would taking the GRE Math Subject test improve my chances of admission at Computational Neuroscience PhD programs?

  5. So one application I am filling out asks if I have taken a GRE subject test. I actually have taken the test twice but the scores aren't satisfying. So, can I choose "no"? I am sure the school will not talk to ETS for this on purpose to just make sure I have not taken one but at the same time I see this as lying...
  6. Hello all! I'm trying to study for my 2nd time at the Biology GRE subject test and am looking for more interactive, class or video study sessions. Simply reading doesn't seem to be doing it for me. If only there was actually a test prep course out there! Any suggestions? I had seen a review here: http://study.com/academy/course/gre-biology-study-guide-test-prep.html#courseNavigation and was wondering if anyone had feedback about review courses on there as well.
  7. Hey has anyone here paid the 12 bucks to get their subject test scores early? If so, was it worth it? I kinda want to know my score so I can get my apps in even earlier...but I don't want to pay for the score early if ETS tends to post the scores online before 6 weeks passes anyway. I'm not concerned with sending the score reports next week, but I'd like the programs to begin reading my application sooner rather than at/near the deadline. Thanks!
