  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Before I started looking for PhD in English programs to apply to, I was looking to see which ones required GRE scores to apply. I found this helpful spreadsheet that lists the schools that don't require any GRE scores. I thought I'd share it with you all, since I know it'll be helpful! Good luck with applying!
  3. Task: Although sound moral judgment is an important characteristic of an effective leader, it is not as important as a leader’s ability to maintain the respect of his or her peers. Instructions: Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Essay: A leader must maintain a variety of important chara
  4. The following appeared as a letter to the editor from a Central Plaza store owner. "Over the past two years, the number of shoppers in Central Plaza has been steadily decreasing while the popularity of skateboarding has increased dramatically. Many Central Plaza store owners believe that the decrease in their business is due to the number of skateboard users in the plaza. There has also been a dramatic increase in the amount of litter and vandalism throughout the plaza. Thus, we recommend that the city prohibit skateboarding in Central Plaza. If skateboarding is prohibited here, we predic
  5. The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. Like the famous saying goes, 'If you want to go fast, walk alone, if you want to go far, walk together'. I suppose the greatest movements of our time
  6. Conformity almost always leads to a deadening of individual creativity and energy. Does conformity prey upon the creativity and energy of an individual? I beg to differ with the speaker’s claim because it overstates the role of individuality and unfairly undermines the benefits of conformity. History certainly holds a testimony that many major contribution to the society stem from individuality but, it also holds equivalent amount of examples when conformity has led to many ground breaking discoveries especially today. I concede to that fact that many inventions and innovations in t
  7. Hi!! I am having the absolute worst time re scheduling my GRE exam so I can take it from home. I was supposed to take my exam in June at a testing center near me, but that testing center closed. Proctor U is impossible to schedule with. Every single time I click any date in the near future, it tells me "It appears the time you selected has been blacked out or the exam time would extend into a blackout". None of the proctor U customer service people have helped me. ETS had my friend on hold for 2+ hours and then dropped the call. This same friend was supposed to take her GRE last weekend. She m
  8. Issue Topic : The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition.The young people can be taught about leadership in government, industries and other fields through cooperation rather than competition. Young minds are naive and malleable. Hence, they can be taught easily about the needs to become a successful leader.To begin with, instilling the sense of cooperation, the act of doing things together in peace and harmony can be an effective method to build a leader among y
  9. Does anyone know of any Speech Language Pathology graduate programs that are waiving the GRE for 2020-2021 due to the coronavirus? Thanks!
  10. Hi, first time poster, I was just wondering if anyone is taking the literature subject test this year... I know not a lot of schools ask for it these days but there are a few programs I want to apply to that require it. If you are, would you be taking it in September, or in October? (I'm worried that the October scores wouldn't reach my schools because it seems like the scores come out late november and the deadlines are in the first week of December)
  11. Hi! I'm planning on applying to clinical psychology phd programs in the fall, and I was wondering if anyone has heard if PhD programs have waived the GRE due to COVID (like many schools are waiving the SAT/ACT for undergrad)? I emailed ETS about their testing centers being open but I haven't heard back... To be completely honest I don't even feel comfortable going into a testing center with the current covid pandemic 😕
  12. Is it true that a low GRE Score automatically rejects applications from univ?
  13. Hello! I am an aspiring forensic psychology grad student, just prepping for the GRE. I have written one practice of each of the Issue and Argument essay, and I am hoping a kind soul will be willing to give them a quick read-through and give me some pointers! They are not long, less than one page each. Additionally, if anyone has any expertise in the GRE, or forensic psychology in general I would love to connect with you! Thanks! essay practice may 11.docx
  14. Hi all!!! I'm an incoming senior at Purdue who is about to take her GRE for the first time in August. I am currently on a study plan with Magoosh. For those have relied on magoosh, did you feel this program helped prepare you for the test? What are some good tips for studying? What do you wish you knew/did differently? Best!~
  15. I imagine that the mean overall is shifted up because of engineering/physics applicants. Does anyone know what the mean and percentiles are for biology applicants?
  16. Just got an email from the Office of Admissions: As testing centers around the world are shut down because of COVID-19, some Graduate Center master’s programs that normally require GRE scores to apply for admission are going to temporarily waive this requirement. These programs are Classics, Cognitive Neuroscience, Data Science, International Migration Studies, Nanoscience, Philosophy, Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences, and Women’s and Gender Studies. For Fall 2020 applicants only, these programs join Data Analysis and Visualization, Digital Humanities, Liberal Studies, and Midd
  17. Hello everyone! I began writing practice GRE essays to improve my score and familiarize myself with the format and expectations of the AWA section. Can anyone read my sample essay and attempt to grade it? if not, then advice will suffice. I will include the sample prompt and my response below. Thanks in advance! The emergence of the online “blogosphere” and social media has significantly weakened the quality of political discourse in the United States. Reason: When anyone can publish political opinions easily, standards for covering news and political topics will inevitably decline.
  18. My test date is near the end of the month and I'm starting to get anxious. I've been reviewing consistently since January but I'm nervous about I still won't be prepared and my score won't improve. This will be my second attempt. First time was not good at all. My grandmother passed away 2 years and I wasn't mentally ready to go back into studying until a month closer to the day I took it. Studying the first time was not consistent. Had a lot of personal things going on, but I'm in a better place. Encouragement and positive words are much appreciated 🙂
  19. I'm in the process of building a free GRE study resource for myself and others aiming to improve their GRE scores (you can check it out here: [removed]). I'm looking for resources to add to the different sections. I'm looking for notes, lesson plans, readings, websites, etc. So long as the material is something you can find online or that doesn't require copyright permissions forms (like notes you've taken from a published work and are willing to share)--I hope you all will be willing to share or suggest. Thank you!
  20. My dream graduate school is Columbia's English and Comparative Literature program, mainly because their courses align with my research interests, and, from what I understand, they allow a wide range for exploration to those interested in comparing literature and other media forms. My grades, I believe, are fine. However, the school feels very out of reach because of my GRE scores. The last two times (yes, twice) I took the test I pulled average in everything except math (just barely met the average on that subject with 0 improvements the next time I tested). I have now been studying
  21. QUESTION: Woven baskets characterized by a particular distinctive pattern have previously been found only in the immediate vicinity of the prehistoric village of Palea and therefore were believed to have been made only by the Palean people. Recently, however, archaeologists discovered such a "Palean" basket in Lithos, an ancient village across the Brim River from Palea. The Brim River is very deep and broad, and so the ancient Paleans could have crossed it only by boat, and no Palean boats have been found. Thus it follows that the so-called Palean baskets were not uniquely Palean.
  22. A nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college.Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. In day to day technology became large and most crucial part of society, where people meet, poke, share and update themselves, so as society, until we truely adopt the basis of our need. As tech become complex and modern, so as society, wh
  23. This is an argument task topic off of the ETS page. I used a random number generator to pick the topic, and timed it out to 30 minutes. I am using Magoosh as my study prep, so I am using the guidelines used from them! This is my first attempt at an argument task, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance! Topic: The following is a letter to the editor of an environmental magazine. "Two studies of amphibians in Xanadu National Park confirm a significant decline in the numbers of amphibians. In 1975 there were seven species of amphibians in the park, and there wer
  24. I'm using Magoosh as my GRE Study Prep, and following the guidelines they used! I got the topic off the ETS website and used a random generator to pick the topic. I timed myself exactly 30 minutes. This is my first attempt, so it's probably pretty rough :) and this is an Issue Task Essay! Topic: Educators should base their assessment of students' learning not on students' grasp of facts but on the ability to explain the ideas, trends, and concepts that those facts illustrate. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommen
  25. I have absolutely no clue where to start with this grad school process, and honestly its stressing me out. I just want to become a Philosophy Professor 😭 I feel like everyone knows where they're going, but I don't even know where the starting line is. Can someone please help me navigate through this?
