On the 22nd, I took the GRE. I think I did well, but I’m not entirely sure. Wait. That isn’t true. I know I did well, I just do know if it was enough. Remember when you were looking at colleges and you had all those books like Princeton Review and the U.S. News and World Report guides to schools? Those had these delightful little conveniences that told you what the average SAT/ACT scores were for admission. Well, I’m learning that those don’t actually exist for grad school. And so, because of this, all I know about the schools I want to get into is that they are “very selective” or “most selective.” What the hell does that mean? Does that mean that I have a shot at getting into Boston College? Who knows? Was my GRE score good enough to get me into “very selective” schools, or am I banished to get my masters degree at University of Phoenix Online? Somehow I don’t think I’ll be a professor at Yale with those qualifications. Not that I want to be a professor at Yale, but I’d like to have some options.
If it wasn’t for that damned quantitative section…
