Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

I have three weeks until I take the GRE (the Graduate Requirement Exam, I don't know if y'all have an equivalent overseas) so I can try to get into a graduate program somewhere. The panic is real. I can't remember the last time I was this mortified.

Tests like that are so stressful!! You take it before your senior year, right?

Yup. I take it on the 8th and my last year of undergrad starts ten days later.
I feel like I'm solid on the verbal and writing portions but I can't do like any math whatsoever. I haven't take a math class at any level in three years.

Math is the death of me. I quit after calculus and never want to think about it again.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

When I was in second grade and we learned how to borrow in subtraction I struggled. It's been down hill ever since.

This is the last time I will ever have to do math and it's very scary. I know my program (history) doesn't place a lot of weight on the math portion but it still looks good if you kind of know what you're doing.

Yeah that makes sense. I took the SATs for college and applied only for programs that absolutely don't relate to math, but that is still extremely important for getting admitted to given schools. I honestly like doing math but I can never remember the formulas and proofs that are all imaginary so it's hard to learn new stuff when the prerequisites for it don't make any sense to me.

When I took the ACT each time (I took it twice because after high school I took 8 years off) I did ridiculously well on everything but the math. The university I'm at still accepted me base on the weight of everything else but had me take remedial math. It also didn't help that my high school's math program was atrocious.

Good luck! The hardest part for me was the timed essays. Other than that, the rest was a breeze. You'll do great!

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Rough! I showed up an hour early only to have them tell me they were probably going to have to cancel the test because the testing center got hit by lightning. Luckily they were able to get the system running even though it still was a bit screwy.

I was so nervous! It'll be another week or so before my official scores are mailed out, so I don't know what I got on the essays and I have essay amnesia so I remember very little of what I wrote. Although I take timed essay exams all the time being nervous and having to type on a desktop really killed a lot of time.

My raw scores for the verbal were a solid average of what I was getting in practices and are highly competitive. My quantative (math) was, for me, really good even though the score was low. I did a lot better than my practice runs.

Luckily my being a history major, the quant doesn't weigh as much as it would in other fields. Also since I'm not applying to Ivy League or top schools in the nation my scores are very competitive. I've had grad students in my department as well as professors in sister departments tell me that I shouldn't worry about my math/quant scores and that retaking it would be a waste of money ($200) because it's really rare for one's scores to significantly improve. So unless I bombed the essays, I won't be retaking it.

The only glitch I had was when sending my scores out to four schools for free, the program didn't let me for some reason so I had to fill out a paper form. I just hope that since they were having issues my scores don't mysteriously disappear into some vacuum.

So aside from waiting for my official scores, I'm relieved that it's over with.

Thank you for all the well wishes I definitely think it helped.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

I love the new sig.

FWIW, I totally punted the math section of the GRE and still got into grad school.

The downside is I have never used my grad degree (MA in history) a day in my life.
