efficacious: the GRE word for success

Monday, October 6, 2008


Last week, I told Andrew that we were going out to dinner tonight. It was either going to be a dinner to celebrate my GRE score or to eat my feelings...but either way, we were going to dinner.
I am proud to say that we will be celebrating my GRE score!
I did well enough on the GRE that I don't have to take it again!!!
It was a rough test, but I managed to pull off an 1120.
God is so so so so good.
I have to wait a few weeks to get my writing scores back, but overall I think I am done with this silly test!
Now I have to write my personal statement, ask professors for letters of recommendation, and fill out applications.
I can't stop smiling....the weight of the world feels like it's been lifted from my shoulders.
YAY!!!!!

The best part of all this is that I know I had awesome friends and family praying for me. It was so cool to get in my car after taking the test and have a ton of text messages from my rad high school girls wishing me luck. It's really encouraging that people take time out of their busy days to think of me. I am blessed by great friendships.
