    Well I'm not a PHD student yet, won't be unless I can get these damn GREs done ;_; I'm taking the general in March I think and then subjects in April if I'm ready .

    Banjo is pretty hard for a fretted instrument. My roommate has one and I've played around with it. I'd love to be great. Unfortunately if I buy anymore instruments, not only will I go completely broke but also Hoarders will probably come and find me for a special of some sort.

    It's so great. Next time I have free time to learn I'm going to give it a try.

    Now, now, that's racist. Anyway, I'm actually half Mongolian half Black and Spanish so if her name is "Satomi" you probably have more ethnically in common with me than she does. My name is arbitrarily Korean though, so I guess I'm jumping to conclusions too. I also don't actually care, I'm giving you a hard time because I like to make people uncomfortable on the internet to distract myself from school work .


    Lyric- You'll do fine on the GRE's, they're not that bad. Subjects need some studying for but the generals are nothing. You need to know math through basic algebra and trig, and you need to know how to speak English and read.

    I am working on my Masters Degree right now and took the GRE about a year ago. I wish you the best of luck!!! You will do great (it took me about 3x to get the scores I wanted but graduate programs sometimes appreciate the extra effort). However, if you are going for a PhD then you probably are 10x smarter than me!

    In regards to the GRE, it depends on your specialty and what graduate program you are trying to get accepted to. Since my Bachelors was Engineering and the GRE requirements for Engineering Grad School were heavily weighted towards Math, I ended up exceeding my score expectations. It was mostly high-school algebra and geometry as calculus is considered a college level mathematics class. (Please realize that they changed the test/scoring the semester after I took it)

    The hardest part for me was the vocabulary as I needed flashcards to study for it. I practiced by using the GRE words, every one from anachronous to zealot, whenever I could in everyday talk/chat/forums. This was the most fun I have ever had on omegle/stranger chat.

    The writing part was not too harshly graded. They average the two scores so if you write a crappy essay do not worry. A lot of people get tripped up on the test by:

    1. Not understanding the format (it is different than other standardized tests and honestly this makes a HUGE difference)
    2. Not reviewing concepts before the exam.
    3. Dwelling on previous answers/questions instead of keeping your head high and focusing on the task.

    My advice is to check out the various programs entrance requirements and choose somewhere that you will be happy. Look at the kind of research available and make sure that the department gets significant funding/grants. When you get to graduate school you will probably choose your advisor/mentor and they will help you decide where your strengths line up with the schools goals/research. Do something you love, realize that it will be tough at times, and remember that whatever you do has never been done before and is something to be proud of.

    I don't believe this is forum relevant (GREs and Grad School) but feel free to PM me for test materials etc. I am a brand new (still learning) snake owner but figure I can help on my other experiences.

    All I know about the GREs is that even my psych professors combined couldn't do the psych GRE.

    And uh, on topic. I took a boatload of my college roommates for a photo shoot and one of my friends wanted to get one of me.
