I took the GRE today and my brain is fried. I did pretty well on the verbal part but my quantitative score wasn’t where I wanted it to be. And that’s the score that engineering schools look at. Hopefully it’s good enough. If not, I still have time to take it again before submitting applications.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken a test like that and I forgot just how badly my brain cramps up under pressure. The problems I breezed through at home had me chasing my tail in the test. But I survived. In days gone by, I would have darted straight to the bar post-exam. Today, I grabbed a nice dinner instead. Perhaps I am getting a little smarter. Or not.
