fenderpete Posted November 7, 2010 Share Posted November 7, 2010 Hi all, So I’m planning to apply for an MPA focused in Conflict Resolution/International Development for Fall 2012 (no harm in starting good and early right?). I’ve just heard that the GRE is going to be changing next year (hopefully for the better) and I’m not sure whether it’s better to wait and take the new test in November/December time (2011) or try and take it before it changes in the Spring. I’m generally not as strong at maths (got a Q610 last time) but pretty good in verbal (V690, AWA 5.5) and I’m wondering whether the new GRE will be easier/tougher than the old one for me (which is at least a known quantity) or just different. I really want to boost my Q score and if possible, consolidate my verbal and end up with an overall score good enough to apply to the really competitive programs (WWS, Georgetown, Harvard). What do you guys reckon? Take the old test and rush my preparations, or prepare to take it in Nov/Dec and risk the new test type? Thanks for any advice!
