Hey everyone! Remember to do your FASFA
Use the free one! Try to remember your PIN (I know I’m gonna have trouble with that), get accurate information about your finances, and don’t put your parents financial information if they aren’t paying for it!
Any questions, feel free to ask
Stony Brook-in progress
CUNY schools-in progress
Northeastern University-in progress
Brown University-in progress
There are more I haven’t begun, but I intend to have them all done by March 1st. It’s going to be
hell a great time
So, SOPHAS is done! Yay. My recommendation for it is to NOT leave it until the last minute like I did. It’s no fun trying to pay those fees and get people to send in recommendations.
Remember, SOPHAS is only for universities that have a school of public health. There are others that have programs, but not schools.
Stony Brook is almost done, CUNYs have been started, Goddard is in progress and almost done, Brown is in progress, missed NYU and UMichigan, but NYU still wants me to finish the application, so I guess sometimes there might be more room?
PS-If anyone has questions, feel free to ask!
So I was joking earlier when I said that my GRE was scheduled on the 14th. It’s the 13, today.
I’m sitting here anxiously waiting to leave for my testing site. In the spirit of the task ahead, I’m going to post a few more need to know things about you and your GRE
1: The GRE is scored differently now. Analytical and Verbal are both out of 170. Writing is out of six. Therefore, a perfect score on the GRE is a 346.
You are given 4 FREE codes to send your scores to schools. So four free send offs, not bad.
You need to arrive half an hour early and expect to stay at your testing site for five hours total.
After this storm, then we’ll worry about getting applications done
So, best of luck to anyone taking it (I know I’ll need it!)
So, I am taking the GRE on November 14th.
So, in the spirit of test taking, I’m going to share the resources I’m using to help my followers along the way.
http://www.english-test.net/gre/ This is my vocab site. Love it! You can just take vocab test after vocab test. It scores you and lets you know the right answer if you get it wrong. It’s nice and simple. I personally hate rote memorization, so this is a fun format for me.
http://www.wtamu.edu/academic/anns/mps/math/mathlab/gre/index.htm This is the math site I use. I suck at math. This is nice because it lays out how to do each problem at the end. It also give helpful tips for the exam.
In conclusion*, the exam is four (4) hours long (bleh). It’s all on a computer. From what I’ve seen of the math, that’s all multiple choice too.
There are three sections:
I’m not including an analytical section because writing is a very personal thing. I’m sure you can google it if you need help. That’s how I got these sources!
A final site is from the creators of the test:
It’s good to see how they tick; you’ll do better if you know what to expect.
Hugs and kisses
*All information comes from the GRE website.
So, it turns out that the first application due is Harvard’s and it is due on December 15th, 2012.
Still have to take the GRE and get scores in. The test costs $165, I think.
SOPHAS common application is almost done!
All that’s left is the resume, Personal Statement and Letters of Recommendation.
