Analytical Writing

This weekend I got my official GRE scores in the mail.

Verbal – 660, 94th percentile
Quantitative – 590, 46th percentile (Okay, so I can’t multiply my way out of a paper bag — at least I can write about the experience!)

Analytical Writing — the only one that is graded by a human and based on essays we write instead of radio buttons we click:
5.5 (out of 6)

What they say about that:
Scores 6 and 5.5: Sustains insightful, in-depth analysis of complex ideas; develops and supports main points with logically compelling reasons and/or highly persuasive examples; is well focused and well organized; skillfully uses sentence variety and precise vocabulary to convey meaning effectively; demonstrates superior facility with sentence structure and language usage but may have minor errors that do not interfere with meaning.


That and yesterday I was told that they held an admissions meeting in the morning and I’ve been accepted to the Master’s degree program at Sacred Heart Major Seminary for Theology.
