Is coaching necessary for GRE? Apart from GRE preparation, I want guidance for applying to US universities for MS.
- Discuss general - Admit.me - Dreams. Realized.
- The free admissions social platform where you can connect with other applicants, students, experts, and schools while leveraging tools to get admitted into your dream program and help others do so.
- Eric Allen expert Well, @himanshu I wouldn't say that it's necessary, but there are certainly a number of people who take advantage of GRE coaching from providers like the Princeton Review, Manhattan Prep and others. If you see our poll, people use all different types of preparation methods including one-on-one coaching, in-person test courses, online courses and purchasing material/self study. W/r to coaching, our Admit Advantage business (www.admitadvantage.com) has been very successful since 2007 coaching candidates through the process. If you think about it, test score is only one aspect of the application: essays, personal statements, interview, resume, and the actual application are much more significant pieces of the puzzle for most schools in their admissions decision criteria. Test scores are used as a preliminary filter as well as an indicator of your potential academic success, but they are not absolute. Most schools use a much more holistic approach to admissions, so the "rest" is pretty important! Feel free to message me directly when you're ready to get started with coaching or if you have any questions about Admit Advantage .
