Topher66 posted a topic in IntroductionsHello, everyone! My name is Topher, and I am a Psychology student currently studying for the GRE. I first discovered this forum because I was looking for people to look at my practice essays and give me feedback, although I am also very happy to help anyone else out with any verbal or quantitative reasoning questions with which help is needed. I look forward to studying with all of you! Best, —Topher
Barcelona GSE or Tinbergen?
owly posted a topic in Admissions ResultsHi all, Got accepted to both programs in economics. Barcelona offers tuition waiver and Tinbergen offers tuition waiver+1060 euros monthly stipend. Barcelona seems to be a more praised school but I have no idea what is the continuation ratio to UPF from there (which I would prefer). I have found scarce comments on Tinbergen but it is almost certain you can continue studying for PhD there if you perform well enough. Also they give enough to cover my living expanses, which is amazing. I am leaning towards Tinbergen but also I am very confused. I am particularly interested in studying econometrics (preferably applied). Any help and comments would be appreciated; I am in need of serious help!
A sincere advice for fellow FPGEE takersMy dear fellow FPGEE takers ,please allow me put this advice forward for you so you can pass and not regret not doing your best to pass : 1- While studying in preparation to take the FPGEE, " NEVER TOTALLY RELY ON " resources that " brief " what you studied in Pharmacy college along five long years , because the FPGEE is designed to measure your ability to act as pharmacists , especially problem solving , in the multitude of different situations in real life in which you are supposed to be with your patients , not your ability to just PASS , because if you passed such examination and even the next ( NAPLEX ) without bearing inside the spirit of a " RESPONSIBLE and RELIABLE " health care professional , you are fast to encounter a situation while on the job that can lead to your hardly earned license being lost or at least suspended . 2- Be honest and true to yourself while studying , and most important , put yourselves in the patient's shoes ; we , as pharmacists , are supposed to make their pain and sufferings less , protect them as much as we can from the harm they may get from side effects , wrong prescription , self-applied medications ,incompliance and the multitude of drug interactions which neither they nor their physicians may pay attention to , and that's why you should always ask yourself this important question before taking the FPGEE ; AM I READY TO BE THAT RELIABLE AND RESPONSIBLE HEATH CARE PROFESSIONAL ..OR ..NOT YET ??...and the more you do your best ,while studying , to be that reliable professional , the more you can be sure to pass the FPGEE with ease . 3- STUDY FROM SCRATCH as if you have just enrolled as a student in pharmacy school , review everything you studied however little or seemingly unimportant , because a pharmacist is non but a bank of information for patients and the last health care professional they consult before being left alone with their medications to take and get benefited ..or harmed . 4- While studying , always contrive questions in the form you are to encounter in the FPGEE ( it will sharpen your wits and help make all information ready and available always in your memory , for the examination , and for your practice after you get your license ) 5- TAKE YOUR TIME and never rush to take the first appointment available ; you are not supposed to pass the FPGEE as a " student " but as a pharmacist who is familiar with ,and an EXPERT in, pharmacy practice , and remember , we are not supposed to pass the FPGEE just to obtain a license , but to practice as reliable , competent , and efficient health care professionals , and the more you put that in your mind before taking the FPGEE , the more you are likely to predict the questions and the problems you will be asked to solve in that important examination and be able to pass it with ease .
Tips of improving on the GRE test
zanelabw posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHello I am a 2nd year PhD student looking to transfer to another school. In this round of application, I'd like to have better GRE scores to apply. Last time I applied, my applications were presumably all desk-rejected due to my embarassingly low GRE scores (below 50th, one is even in the 30th percentile) However, given that I only spent about 3 or 4 weeks studying and not studying at it very hard, I am hoping I can drastically improve my scores. Has anyone drastically improved their GRE or GMAT scores? Did you work while studying for the GREs too? I would like to increase that percentile to the 70th or 75th. What tips do you have for studying for the GREs? I am looking at online prep courses and hoping they would be helpful. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Profile Eval! Would like some opinions
sjb55 posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHey guys and girls, I am applying to do a PhD at the University of South Carolina in International Business. Profile: 7 years of professional experience at two fortune 500 global consultancies. Undergrad GPA: 2.5 from the University of SC (Low.. but a long time ago) I have a Master's in Risk Management from Florida State -- William T Hold Scholar, Dean's List - Final GPA 3.53 (Did this while traveling as a consultant 4 nights a week) Currently, I am studying at The London School of Economics for a MSc in Management, Information Systems and Digital Innovation. I will have two Master's and 7 years professional experience at the time of entry. Problem areas: GMAT -- I took the GMAT in 2015, one time, without studying, to get a feel for the test and got a 540. I never studied for it again, applied to FSU and got in -- When applying to the London School of Economics, I did not need to submit my GMAT so I didn't retake it. 540 is obscenely low. I did not have time to retake this test prior to applying to USC. I was working/consulting full time and upon arriving in London my time is better spent working with world class researchers and studying than reviewing for the GMAT. Also, before anyone trolls -- I did buy GMAT study materials and attempted to prepare -- but here at LSE, if any of you have attended, you read nearly 12 hours a day. It's just simply not possible, there's not enough time in the day. What do you guys think? Is this a killer? I've tried my best to articulate this and point towards my profile strengths in my essays.

So, I'm in this dilemma: should I spend the summer studying for the GRE or should I get more research experience? My current score is GRE:159 (83%) Verbal, 170 (97%) Quant, 4.0 (60%) Analytical Writing. Any advice?
Difficulty Grasping the GRE
LeonidBasin posted a topic in GRE[h=1]Hi, Thanks for this wonderful forum and great people who visit it! I recently took the GMAT but did not do too well on it. I did well on the Verbal section, but Math has always been difficult for me. I am trying to take the GRE, as I find that it fits my style of learning (information covered, topics) better. What recommendations do you guys have for improving GRE Quantitative Section? I am hoping to pursue an MBA and get into a Business School. Regards, GRE Student[/h]
