Three Good Reasons to Start Prepping for the GRE

Last Updated: Jun 1, 2020 5:15:00 AM

All three reasons share one key element, time.

Reason #1: There are two upcoming GREs in the near future. 

stop watch

The next two test dates are September 12th and October 17th. Students who miss those administrations – or sit for them but don’t do well (possibly due to lack of proper preparation) will have plenty of time to work on practice test questions, and sit for full simulations, which we can provide, in order to learn where you most need to improve. Identifying your weaknesses is critical to improvement; both learning and improvement work take time.

Reason #2: Summer has been effectively cancelled. 

studyingThe Coronavirus pandemic has either halted or severely restricted many student activities. That means that there’s time to prep now, a situation less likely after school restarts, in whatever form, later this summer. Schools look for students who use their time wisely – such as learning their weaknesses and doing something about them – because those students are likely to maintain that very attitude in their graduate studies. Scoring well on the GRE will be a positive sign.

Reason #3: Scores are valid for 5 years.

Did you know that the GRE is accepted by a number of law and business schools, too? The validity and impact of a good test score have never been more important. Taking a GRE while still formulating post-graduation plans is a valuable and insightful decision for students while they’re still in the academic learning-and-testing mode of their undergraduate education. Make the most of your current education.

Test prepFor those students who aren’t GRE-inclined, we also offer prep for the MCAT, GMAT, and LSAT, as well as complete support for the grad/law/med/MBA application process, from school selection to application to needed essays/personal statements.
