Well I am all registered for my classes and financial aid has come through again. However, I am not looking forward to paying back the $60,000 after I finish my Masters degree. I guess that's the price you pay for getting an education, huh?! It will be well worth it though, as long as I can get a good stable job when the time comes. Two more years of studying and then taking the test to become a licensed social worker. I don't know how I ever got through the GRE test to get into grad school!
The GRE (graduate record examination) has been dropped by many universities, but of course not the one I wanted to attend! Have you ever looked at some of the questions for this exam? I didn't know there were so many words that I didn't know! For example.....adumbrate, abjure, animadversion, aplomb, circumlocution, comestible, deleterious, demagogue.....do any of you know what these words mean? I sure didn't and there are many, many more that I never even knew existed! (I have added a link on the side for dictionary.com if you want to get the definition of these words) I had just had 4 years of college and I felt dumber than a box of rocks when I started studying for the GRE......Uuhhgg!
I did not do well on the exam, but I was not going to pay the money to take it again. I certainly didn't want to study for it again. My daughter and one of my former professors told me not to worry about it because it didn't matter.....and they were right, because I still was accepted to grad school.
So if any of you want to go check out the GRE and take a practice test, just look it up on the Internet and try it!
