Hi, I am wondering if 1-2 month would be long enough to prepare for the GRE.
At first, I wasn't really thinking of taking it since I am applying to Masters program in counseling psychology and all Canadian Universities don't require GRE for the masters.
Even some universities such as TC@Columbia doesn't require the GRE.
Although GRE is required for other US schools, I wasn't really worried about taking it asap because those schools were not my top choices.
However, I heard the GRE is being revised in this fall, and the last date to take the current GRE is July 30th.
According to the information on the internet, it seems like the new GRE is going to be much harder and everyone including those ppl at Kaplans recommend taking the current GRE before the fall.
As a result, I am thinking of taking the current GRE in this summer, but I am not sure if I have enough time to prepare for it.
My final exam ends on April 30th, and I haven't started anything on GRE so far.
I don't really want to start studying the GRE now because I need to do well this term-there is one course I didn't do too well on the midterm.
For this reason, I would like to start studying GRE from May 2nd.
If I don't do anything but studying GRE from that point, would it be ok to take the GRE once in very end of May?
I would register one in May, one in mid June and one in early July just in case I would do poorly on the first try.
Anyway, if all I do is studying for GRE from May 2nd, would it prepare me to take GRE in the late May, mid June and early July?
*I would only need to take the GENERAL GRE, not the subject one.
*I haven't started anything on GRE, but I wouldn't want to start now because I really need to do well this term.
Also, GRE is not very urgent thing right now since I am not applying to Ph.D program and my top choice schools don't require GRE for the masters.
*However, if possible, I would like to take GRE before it changes to the much harder version since I may need GRE score in the future.
*I wouldn't be able to take GRE no later than early July this summer because I need to go home-and GRE TEST is not offered in my home country. I am in Canada now
*If I don't take GRE this summer, I might take one summer course and work/volunteer for the whole summer.
