  1. This has happened to me plus the few others of fellow test takers as well as a few of my friends that are in the same boat. The social sciences backgrounders are getting three Quant sections in the GRE. I guess this has to do with the selection that you make before starting the test where you enter your intended graduate field/subfield. Similarly, those from the engineering/sciences background are getting three verbal sections. Is it safe to assume the selection of intended program you make at the start of the test makes that section choice for you? It's not a big deal to tweak the algorithm to give three sections to those with opposing intended degree programs (3 quants for social sciences/humanities and 3 verbal for engineering, for example). Is it happening to others as well and is a systematic device by the ETS?
  2. Hi all, I am looking for insight into how application readers for PhD in Political Science weight the GRE verbal versus GRE quant scores. So far, I've read mixed thoughts on the two. I've taken the GRE and have gotten a score of 165V/160Q (95th/76th percentiles) and 160V/164Q (85th/87th percentiles). Which do you think would be better to send to schools as part of my application? I also have no intention of retaking the exam again. Thank you so much for your insight and help!
  3. Hi there, I am planning to take my GRE in June. Basically,i have around 3 months to prepare. What really freak me out is that i took the Barron's test last weekend and it turn out that my GRE verbal score is about 131-139. The school that i am planning to attend require 70th percentile for verbal and math. Is there any way to improve my verbal section in the very short period of time. Please advise!!!
  4. My English is terrible. Whenever I take a test involving reading and vocabulary, I freak out. I will do my best to get my reading speed up. Meanwhile, where can I find a good, long list of GRE words that won't let me down? I would also appreciate any advice regarding what to read that would be best for preparation for the reading sections. thanks!
