    What do you all know about Stony Brook. Are they reputable? They do not require the GRE what's up with that?

    If I haven't filled out any apps and still haven't taken the general GRE, Should I even bother applying at this point?

    I'm applying there. It is one of the top clinical programs in the country. I think they do require the GRE, in fact I'm pretty certain of it. Good luck.

    To answer your second questions-- honestly, probably not. It takes a good amount of time to prepare for the GREs, take them, write personal statements, request recommendations (should give at least a month's notice), and these days most deadlines are around Dec. 15th, sometimes before. You're better off taking a year to get experience and figure out where you want to be.

    I decided not to apply this year. I do have experience (bachelor's in neuroscience, master's in biology with 2 years research on TBI-Traumatic Brain Injury. I just have too much on my plate too focus on apps. I'm not getting in younger though (27yrs).
