Most of you know that if you are planning on going to graduate school you likely need to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). For those of you who are not familiar with the GRE, its similar to the ACT in that many (but not all) graduate schools require it as part of their admissions process (i.e., the GRE is to graduate school as the ACT is to college). The content of the GRE, however, is quite different, and we strongly encourage anyone planning to take it to study for it!
This time of year, a lot of questions come up for students regarding the GRE. They want to know when the best time is to take it, what the best way is to study for it, and so on. To find out the answers to these questions, we encourage you to attend one of the GRE Information Sessions held by HUD/PSYCH faculty members in April. At these sessions, we will describe the test for you, give you information about signing up for it, discuss some study tips, and introduce you to some other students who are also planning to take the GRE soon (you may be able to use this time to set up some informal study groups). The Information Sessions will be on Tuesday, April 20th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. and Monday, April 26th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Both meetings will be the same, so you only need to attend one, and both will be held in MAC 210.
