[nabs-l] Questions related to Grad School

Hi Liz. I would suggest maybe applying to the schools and getting accepted 
before taking the GRE. Different programs don't always require you to take 
the GRE, at least where I am going to school. I would definitely contact the 
school's disability office and talk with them. They could probably steer you 
in the right direction on getting practice materials for the GRE. I first 
applied for graduate school and was accepted. I had an entrance interview 
and they told me that if I didn't do really well on the GRE not to 
necessarily worry about it. They look at all of your grades and all of that 
as well. If you think of anything else, please let me know.

Arielle and all,

I have a lot of questions, but I'll start with a few:

I have two schools that I'm looking at. I haven't yet taken the GRE, and I'm
wondering whether or not to take it first before contacting the schools, or
would it be better to contact the schools informing them of my interest and
say that I haven't yet taken the GRE, but am making the necessary
preparations to do so? Also, do I contact ETS first with accommodations, or
do I go through the local testing center here that offers the test? I'm also
trying to figure out how to obtain accessible practice materials.

I think those are the basic things at the moment that I can think of off the
top of my head.

Take care,
