it happens tomorrow

The hurricane may be heading our way, but tomorrow morning, I rise at 5AM: I'm taking the GRE at the same Falls Church ProMetrics testing center I went to last time. The test's start time is 7:30AM; I have to be there 30 minutes early, and it's at least a one-hour drive out to Falls Church. That means waking at 5AM and skedaddling by 5:50 or 6AM.

I'm hopeful about this test, but not sure I'll hit 800 on the Quantitative. A lot depends on what sort of Quant problems I receive. I'm sure I'll do better than 730 on the Verbal, and I'm betting I can score another 5.5 (or possibly a 6) on the Analytical Writing section. I studied a lot harder for this upcoming exam than I did for the previous one. At the very least, I'd like to prove to myself that I can score at least a 1500, Verbal plus Quant.

If I do break 730 on the Verbal, I'll email MGRE and ask them Nathan's question about whether a person can teach only GRE Verbal at their school. Of course, I won't know my results for a few months, so it's going to be a long wait.
