It’s Not GREek!

It’s Not GREek! is a GRE blog dedicated to decoding, demystifying, and deciphering the GRE and graduate school admissions. We offer tips on GRE prep, pointers on the admissions process, and information about the new (revised) GRE that the ETS released in August 2011. We are a community for prospective graduate school students to share ideas, ask questions, and commiserate about the oft-frustrating process of applying to grad schools and taking the GRE. Have questions? Concerns? Want to rant about your experiences? We want to hear all about it!


Bill – Bill graduated with a B.A. in English with a concentration in Literature and a minor in Philosophy. Having recently found a graduate program that interests him, he is currently preparing for the GRE and looking forward to sharing his experiences with “It’s Not GREek” readers.

James – James recently graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Creative Writing and a B.F.A. in Musical Theater with an Honors Program concentration. A former Test Masters student, James now teaches the same test-tackling strategies that helped him achieve a 2280 on the SAT in 2009 (and, by extension, earn a Presidential Scholarship at a prestigious private university).

Michael – Michael recently graduated from Rice University with a B.A. in Chemistry. As a Test Masters instructor he now imparts the same strategies that helped him get a 2330 on the SAT, and enjoys doling out unsolicited advice regarding college admissions to pretty much anyone who will listen. Michael is currently going through the application process for graduate school, and hopes to share his experiences with “It’s Not GREek” readers.
