    Definitely use "in fact" at least once. Be very decisive and firm. Write like you're a Te dom and things will go your way.

    I can mimic the language, but it's always obvious I have zero goal-orientation... I just walked out of my apartment into my stupid college town & it was gameday, & everyone's walking the main strip in 2s & 3s & families & groups, & this kid's trying to carry his friend & his friend rolls around & pukes on him, & then falls into the gravel by the road... & what have I accomplished today?

    By the way, FD, I'm pretty sure they send you a free CD with sample tests you can take ... or maybe you download them off the ETS website. I don't remember for sure because it was a long time ago and I didn't bother doing them anyway but I do know that they exist. So if you want a taste of what's ahead, you should definitely try that out.

    I'll probably start practicing in a week. Maybe I'll set up a schedule. How does it compare overall to the SAT (to everyone who's taken both)?

    Given that your test is in a week, I would be more scared if I were you. I would go out and buy a book now. Unless you're MEH about grad school.

    Oh no, the test is October 20th... I don't even think you can register a week before taking it (I just registered tonight).... I have a little over a month to practice. EZ

    By week I meant month.

    My friend who got 800/790 studied for it all summer and took it in October; I studied for it for several months . . . even if you're smart it's worth taking seriously and practicing.

    If I studied all summer to take it in October, I'd probably end up forgetting it all by the test day. I'd skillfully use the month of September exclusively for forgetting everything I'd done the past 3 months... my brain's efficient like that. more personality garbojj.

    I studied the night before and got a 1300. It's honestly not very difficult, and I say this having taken the LSAT as well (which was a much more difficult test.) The GRE is easy as shit. And you know what? Most grad programs in the humanities don't give a shit about your GRE as long as you score over 1200.
