Heh, yes you infer correctly
. Thing is, they even state on their site that most applicants to the MMS don't submit MGRE scores, and I have a busy summer lined up already, so I really think it is only worth my while if it actually increases my chances of finding additional funding. The GTA stipend (about $1875/mo., which goes far in Columbus) and tuition waiver is nice, but as the other part of my username suggests, I'm *ahem* rather non-traditional. I'll be leaving a decent paying job to do this, and have a family of three to help support, so I may need to supplement that stipend. Prepping for the MGRE is a lot of work, so I want it to pay off. You may be right about it strengthing my app, but I had been thinking it was a non-factor there.
