Okay, so I got my GRE scores in the mail.  And they were…. not as good as I hoped but not as bad as I thought. 

My combined score (verbal and math) was 1100.  Of that, my verbal score was better than 93% of the test pool results.  My math… well, let’s just say that the results were quite lopsided.  Good thing I’m not trying to get into a math-based grad program. 

The biggest disappointment for me was my score on the essays.  The max (perfect) score you can get is a 6, and I really was looking for a 4.5 to 5.  I ended up with a 4.  A 4!  What the hell? 

What does this mean for me and the grad programs I had my results sent to?  Dunno yet.  I suppose we’ll see how aggressive their admissions departments are in the coming weeks and months. 

And all of this boils down to the age-old question:  what do I want to be when I grow up? 

Stay tuned.
