- 0Nov 23, '12 by nurse_crna2bI just have 285 GRE score.... I just seemed not to do well on this test at all!!
What are my chances to get into SAmuel Merritt CRNA program - they mentioned 290 for GRE scores....
My stats: 3 1/2 years of ICU, GPA: 3.75, CCRN and other awards, certifications... I don't know if I should retake it?
ANyone please share your opinions! Thanks!!
- 0Nov 24, '12 by missnurse01Hi! hopefully for someone that knows Sam Merr well can give you some input. You can also call the program and ask them flat out if that is the minimum they require, or if you are still competitive. I agree, the test is horrid and just a hoop you have to jump through.
- 0I wouldn't want my first impression with a school to be me calling to see if they would consider me even though I don't meet their stated minimum requirements....... just retake the GRE. Study first. A firm grasp of high school algebra and geometry will guarantee you a fantastic score...
- 2I would argue that the evidence is there for *some* correlation, however weak, between GRE score and graduate school success. Even though it is widely considered to be a poor predictor of success, I'd be willing to be that both very high and very low scores still raise eyebrows on admissions committees.
Try khanacademy.org for algebra and geometry review..... and do TONS of practice problems.... especially the word problems!
Pump A can empty a pool in A minutes, and pump B can empty the same pool in B minutes. Pump A begins emptying the pool for 1 minute before pump B joins. Beginning from the time pump A starts, how many minutes will it take to empty the pool?
Hold on while I stick a fork in my eye..... LOL..
