    You can learn almost as much about advanced college degrees here as you can about martial arts.

    This is a very good thing.

    I wonder if any of the other MA forums can claim a similar number of members who have/are pursuing advanced degrees? Something makes me doubt it.

    GRE: I bought two books for it and had some tutoring from a family member that does independent tutoring for standardized tests. The books I bought were the Kaplan GRE book and a book published exclusively by the ETS that has like 7 paper-based exams for you to practice on.

    The GRE website also has a downloadable program with two full CAT (computer-based) tests that EXACTLY mimic what you'll use at the testing center.

    The recommendation is to take one of the practice tests before you start studying at a baseline, work your way through, then take it about a week before the exam date to confirm progress.

    The area of work I needed the most assistance on was math, but I needed some minor assistance in the essay-writing portion to learn exactly how they wanted an essay written. I got a 100% on the essay portion. As for GRE scores, I got a 660 and 620 on the verbal and math, respectively.

    It's best to practice off of the tests made exclusively by the ETS rather than the Kaplan or Princeton Review tests for this because the non-ETS tests have questions you'd never have on the exam, such as math ones that force you to estimate what quantity a bar graph is showing, since that's a subjective reference that some people could get wrong (in fact, my tutor and I got the same question wrong when she went over my answers).

    Are you planning on a subject test also?

    There is also a Straight Blast Gym in the area which I believe also offers BJJ. Not 100% sure.


    Psychology is a big field. Any particular areas of interest?

    Albany has a decent I/O program. Leadership studies under Gary Yukl would certainly be interesting.

    I have a primary field and a secondary field.

    Under the context of health psychology/behavioral medicine, I'm interested in the areas of eating disorders and health behavior promotion (like maintaining a pill regiment or a fitness program). With ED, I'm interested in developing a primary prevention plan and improved treatment rate for ED.

    My secondary interest is researching the psychosocial benefits (mental/psychological) benefits of martial arts. Basically, does martial arts provide unique or superior benefits to one's mental/psychological health compared to general fitness or sport-specific exercise? And if so, what aspects of it make it so?

    If you go to Kent State, look up Eduardo "Dudu" Barros, he's a brown belt and while I was still there taught one-on-one lesson for like $70/month. He's very legit, any other bjj and you'd have to drive to Cleveland from Kent.

    He's named here:
