Have an expired GRE of 308. Hoping to get a waiver lowkey but open to writing again.
I am considering first round application so I can maximize scholarship opportunities.

Why? I have always wanted to do business but healthcare business however I came from a country where being good at math and the likes means you get shoo’d into sciences and I stayed there for years. I did great honestly because I was able to use my skills and achievements to self petition and get a green card and I’m trying to go back into healthcare business but I am lacking in everything business knowledge and skills although my quantitative skills are awesome if I do say so myself

Is it worth a shot this year or do I get my GRE shit together and apply next year
