if you have done any volunteer work (long term) I think your supervisor can also write a letter of recommendation for you. I wouldn't ask a client because IMHO schools want to see a supervisor comment on your skills and not your clients.

I would just apply in the round in which my application is good enough. My philosophy is don't apply too early if you need more time to put the last touches on your application just for the sake of applying in the earlier rounds and don't apply too late (ie last round) just because you are scared th...

good job on the 670! I suggest that you do the quantitative first and then the verbal. since the first part of the exam is quantitative I think it would make sense to start there. plus there are only 3 books for verbal...good way to end your studying!

B is incorrect bc "who" is modifying the incorrect noun "birth". also this option changes the meaning of the sentence. "since" in the original sentence tries to show effect so we should stick with an answer choice that conveys the original meaning
