I survived the GRE, at least for now. I’m not exceptionally pleased with my performance, so I won’t get into it all that deeply. I did better than expected, significantly better in fact, on the math part. But I was guessing on many of the questions so that’s a fluke. I didn’t do nearly as well as I wanted on the verbal, which is really disappointing. I’m still above the 90th percentile, but my goal was the 97th so I’m a bit frustrated by that. Of the two essays, I really feel like I messed one of them up. Rumor has it they have only 2-3 minutes to devote to grading each essay, so hopefully the parts that are disjointed in that essay get lost in the skimming. I think I did well enough on the other. I’ll get my essay and official scores back in 2-3 weeks. I did some checking after I got back, and my score would get me into Missouri’s master’s program if I was a recent college grad with a 3.0, so I suppose I shouldn’t be so disappointed if my GRE score was good enough for Mizzou. Of course, I’m not a recent grad and I didn’t have a 3.0 as an undergrad either. Looks like I better take apples to class with me this spring!
I’m going to decompress the rest of the afternoon and will try to get back in the swing of things tomorrow. Hey, I’ve got a trip to KC to look forward to now!
