Taking GRE!!! Want to get into UT Austin!!!


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what is the least score UT will take? I want to apply for the master's program in Autism for Fall of 2016. I take the GRE soon. Also any advice for the GRE and UT?

According to UT Austin's Master's in Autism and Developmental Disabilities website, which explains in great detail the requirements, they suggest above a 150 on verbal and quant. See: http://www.edb.utexas.edu/education/departments/sped/prospective/requirements/

Depending on your other stats, and even regardless of them, I wouldn't aim for the minimum requirement or suggested score, but it's a good starting point.

As for specifics on UT, I can't really answer that, but their website is quite comprehensive (some programs have bare-bones websites) so you should read it closely.

For the verbal GRE, I suggest practicing vocabulary. I also liked the Manhattan Prep books that break down each section...I think it's a series of 8 books that reteaches you the kinds of math you'll encounter (6 books dedicated to math, I believe) and comes with 2 books splitting the verbal into reading comprehension and text completion. I found it useful to split my studying into chunks like this, but ultimately focused more on verbal because I'm a humanities major.
