“No dream is too big and no dreamer is ever too small.”
Opting for the GRE is indeed one of the best options to explore for your higher studies. It is the first stepping stone to your study-abroad dreams. Many of us see ourselves boarding the air plane and fly towards our dream university to study. However, most of us stop with the dreaming. Well, it’s time to buck up and work for it, and Galvanize has got you covered.
In a recent webinar that we organized, we shared the blueprint of the GRE including the challenges of its prep and the procedures involved in getting a successful admit. We also focused on the timeline for the Spring’19 which is the upcoming admit season.
Understanding the GRE is as important as taking the GRE itself. In this session we wanted to specifically elucidate the basics of the GRE like the scoring system, sections in the GRE, nature of the test, fee and score validity along with the structure and pattern of the GRE.
Typically, every student or working professional who aspires to study abroad should be willing to dedicate at least 6 to 8 months of focused prep for the GRE. This period also gives you ample time to gear up for the processes that come after the exam, namely:
- Retaking the GRE if the score is less
- Profile building
- Shortlisting universities based on the profile
- Preparing the SoP, LoR and Resume
- Collecting other transcripts
- Applying to the Universities
- Availing Financial Assistance
- Finishing the VISA process
Talking of the admit seasons, at least some of the aspirants may know that the Spring semester is usually preferred to its Fall counterpart. Is this a myth? If not, what is the difference between the two, the acceptance rates to different universities and potential job opportunities?
