Well..I made the mistake of taking it last february..without preparing...I hope it doesn't hurt me when admissions see that! I am going to take it in Oct. again, but as of right now studying sucks!! How much do you do a day? How do you regulate it around you other classes and stuff you do? I seriously only study 8 hours a week!! Is that bad....holy ****..maybe I need a flame lit underneath my ass!!!
I sent in my registration in July and received a notice of receipt letter (not the admission card) last week, so I think they're just mighty slow. If you're getting worried about it, though, definitely give them a call to make sure they've received your stuff.
