Most schools probably won't even accept your January scores for this year - unless they have later deadlines, which I guess is probably the case if you haven't applied yet.
Look on each school's PTCAS page under "last acceptable testing date" in the GRE section to be sure but you should definitely apply ASAP either way
If I am waiting to take the GRE's over again (due to a low score) in January and haven't applied to schools yet should I include my first time taking it or omit it from the application on PTCAS? Thanks.
As someone mentioned previously, your current and prior GRE scores will be sent so the schools will see older GRE's. Also, remember it's just one factor in the application screening process (as buruburudoku states) so don't worry about them at this point. My weren't great the 2nd time I took the test and I'm still getting interviews for the 2011 classes.If it is not seriously low, you should ust apply. most schools only need the minimum cutoff gre score or around and alot of other factors count such as interview, essay, your undergrad gpa.
Strictly my advice: use the time between now and maybe August to "study" for the GRE and take it in August. That will give you time to prepare for the test and get the results to the schools you're targeting in plenty of time. Unless, of course, you feel you will be ready for the GRE in March in which case, I don't think it matters that ETS will send your results within 15 days of taking the test - your programs will have the results on file when your app arrives later in the year.I am hoping I can get some advice as I gear up to apply this upcoming summer/fall for PT school. I have not yet taken the GRE and have been looking on the website to register. I have looked at the PT schools I want to apply to and most want the GRE scores starting in October through December 2011. On the GRE website it says that they will send the scores out 10 to 15 days after you take the general test. Do I still put down the schools I am going to apply to for my scores to be sent out even though I will not be applying until July/August for admission into PT school for Fall 2012? Or should I wait and have my scores sent out when my PT school apps. go out? I plan on taking the test in March of this year.
