The good news is that I have a year to take it and haven't started studying at all except for glancing over an old gre practice book. I found my baseline score from this test which is awful and will get my application thrown away from any halfway competitive program. I would like to know if anyone made a miraculous advancement from studying with GRE prep materials. Most of the people on here start with a good score and make it great. Has anyone started with an awful score and made it good? I'm just worried that not trying in high school will be my downfall because I have such a weak foundation in this area. Thanks for any input!
