    GRE scores through PTCAS

    Hello, I'm really confused on how to send my GRE scores to PTCAS. I already inputted my scores, but do I need to send them to each individual school? Or just have them be verified on PTCAS in general? I'm really confused so any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

    Is Magoosh worth it?

    I took the GRE yesterday and I did pretty horrible on it. I studied for about two months using mostly Kaplan and Barron's essential words. So obviously that didn't work out for me and I need to do something different before I retake it again in a month. I've heard great things about Magoosh...
