Im graduating this spring and I am going to apply to some graduate schools and have to take the GRE's. So.. When is a good time to take them and how much in advance should you prepare for them, like a good rule of thumb? I was planning early september... Too soon/late? Also, anyone know a site for small and mid-size graduate schools, preferably meteorology or atmos. sciences? Also im not going to send scores yet as its still early and haven't decided where I want to go. So can I get it sent later? Is it bad that i havent picked schools to send my scores to now? Also my GPA is a 3.2 out of 4.0 scale and im a little nervous. I don't go to a big school but a moderate size university. So im trying to find schools with "MS programs at schools that have lower requirements" so I can have a safe school so to speak. As alot of programs with my field are big size like the university of Colorado etc so I don't know if my school name might hinder me.
