Hi everyone, 

I am planning to retake the GRE as advised by one of the CRNA schools I applied to. They have advised me to skip the verbal section and only take the quantitative part since that was all they needed from me.  Has anyone done this yet?  I am quite unsure of just retaking a part of the test will be the smart thing to do.  

Any inputs and suggestions will be highly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Take the whole exam seriously, don’t do that to yourself. Never know what other schools may want from you in case that school doesn’t pan out.

Do you know which area you are inherently stronger in? I've always known my strength was verbal, and the schools that I applied to that required GRE looked at the total score.  I would encourage you to study for a few months, try to really kill it on both sections.  I mean, you're paying a fair bit to take the exam as it is...I think skipping a section seems strange.

Yeah. I would take the whole thing. You'll probably score better even with minimal studying. Schools just say stuff sometimes - I'll leave it at that.
