edited March 2010 in GRE Prep
610 Q 610 V 4.5 written
Weirdest, most MEH score ever, considering i got 1290's + on my practice tests.
The only reason I would take it over would be for the written portion of the exam The score surprised the hell out of me considering that all I do is write.

    What j-schools are you looking at?

    I just got accepted to all four top-tier j-schools that I applied to with a Q score slightly higher than yours, V score a little bit lower and the same AW score.

    Honestly, I think j-schools have enough sense to know that the AW score is in no way representative of your abilities as a writer. I know mine wasn't.

    Wow. A response! My ultimate goal is (and has always been) NYU's Joint IR/Journalism Program. I'm retaking the test, masochist that I am. I'm also looking at straight IR programs at American, GW, LSE, University of Amsterdam and Columbia (because applying to that school seems like an inevitable rite of passage, at this point.).What schools did you get into?
