GRE blues


Since it is about a week past new years, I believe a HAPPY NEW YEAR is long over due. I hope everyone had a restful winter break, whether it was several days to a month of vacation. I am back at work, and ready to start my LAST semester as an undergrad.

I notice that I have not posted since November. The past 2 months, I have been preparing for the GRE (graduate entrance exams) in order to apply to grad school by the fall time. My hope is to get into Northern, but I've got a few other back up choices just in case. My boyfriend and his parents can tell I'm extremely nervous about the exam, which I know is REALLY bad for test taking. The Barron's practice exams are ridiculously hard, specifically the analogies. I have took practice tests, bought several prep books, and I still feel unprepared.

If anyone has recently taken the GRE, I would love to hear your experiences with them, it would sure give me a better idea of the experience I should expect. It's been FOREVER since I've taken a standardized test.

About Me

My Photo
Kavita (luvikavi)
I am a 25 year old loud mouth by my words yet soft spoken at heart. I have love affairs with new thoughts, ideas, controversies, movies, news,helping those in need and politics. If something tickles my fancy, I will blog profusely about it. The world is filled with nonsense, and writing helps me grasp the reality, whatever that may be.
I graduated from Northern with a Bachelors in Health and Human Sciences, with an emphasis in family and individual development. I hope to GOD my thousand and thousand dollars in loans has prepared me enough for Grad school which I will be venturing off into this Fall of '10. YIKES!
