Should I bother with only 2 weeks to study?


Recommended Posts

The program I'm applying for doesn't require the GRE, but factors it into admissions decisions if provided. I had planned to take it because standardized tests are a strength of mine, but with other life stuff going on and studying for the entrance exam to the program I haven't had a chance to start studying until this weekend. I do work full time so 2 weeks of studying is most likely 1-2 hours on weekdays if I dedicate all my lunch breaks and some evenings and a few hours the Saturday and Sunday between now and then. There's only one Saturday available until October so having my scores submitted a week late or something to give me an extra weekend to study isn't possible.

I've been out of school for 2.5 years so I'm a little rusty on math and academic writing. Think I could do well enough with this amount of studying to make it worth the test fee? I have pretty good natural test-taking skills, but I know a lot of people spend months studying and take classes and whatnot. I don't want to waste the money if I won't do really well or risk sending a bad score.
