GRE Update

I took another practice test today.  The verbal stayed at 710 and I got a 5 on each of my essays.

The good news from math?  Up to a 540!  YES!  Amazing what a couple of weeks of studying can do for you!

Random question for the universe: why do I get junk mail from a group called "Americans for Limited Government" on the email account attached to this blog?  Did I ever write anything that would make anyone think I'm in favor of limited government?  If I did, I'm sorry.  I don't feel that way.  I don't think the new health care bill went far enough (meaning I'm all for a single payer system) and I think Wall Street needs more regulation.  When I open up my spam folder and see a bunch of emails from Americans for Limited Government I want to call a bunch of takeout pizzas to their headquarters and make them pay for them.  That, or put flaming dog poop on their doorstep.  One or the other.

Congrats on raising that math score in only 2 weeks. It's funny that your new score is the same numbers as your first score, just rearranged.

I am jealous of the math score!

I get emails and ad requests all the time for my blog from "payday" loan companies, the ones that loan you $500 at 18% interest for one month. Do they think anyone reading my blog would do that loan? Just random stuff.

Emily - thanks! I hadn't noticed that about the two scores, pretty funny

GYSC - Jealous of my math scores? Ha! You're a funny one :) You get those scam loan emails? Now that's funny!

Yay for the improving score! BIG kudos to you, Mira!!!
I suck at math...

Hey- for the spam mail-- You should see all the junk I get and namely political stuff from the U.S. I want to write back and tell them- Dammit- I live in France and I can only vote for Prez... but I'm afraid they'll only just add me to more junk mail lists..
Oh well.. I don't think it's aimed at you or anything you did- I just think they're out there, spamming people! Damn them all!
I keep getting ones from Russian girls so what am I doing to get that?? Shoot- Sometimes I think it may be related to pop up boxes we 'close' or other stuff people add to their websites-- I've been doing to a lot of English grammer/esl websites- maybe that's where the leak is.. hehehe!
Figures, huh...
Take care and have a great day!
Hugs!

I like the poop comment haha. And DANG 710, that's pretty amazing! I did super marginally on my GRE but got a 6 on the writing parts haha. I was quite proud of that.

No I don't think you get me, I am math deficient big time!

Leesa - fess up now, you know you've written a bunch about wanting a mail order Russian bride :) just kidding, obviously! Thanks for the kudos!

Monique - 6 on your writing? That's awesome! I think most of the topics are idiotic, that's my main frustration.

GYSC - you and me both! I'm terrible at math. Can't believe I'm doing this well!

Zhu - thanks! I get the Viagra and " increase your size" spam on my real gmail account all the time! Luckily gmail has a good spam filter.
