I'm starting my senior year of college as a sociology major and I just decided I want to apply to Masters in Urban Planning programs for next year. One problem is this pesky little thing known as the GRE. I have 0 preparation for it so far. How long should I budget to study for it, and how import an is it to do well for urban planning programs. I'm considering taking a course because a kaplan course brought my SAT from a 1940 to a 2120. Would that be worth it? I have until January before these applications are due.
