    I guess there is a question hidden somewhere in between the lines. Feels like ‘Da Vinci code’

    what’s with the gre score? is that normal? mine was almost twice that amount. how could he get into *any* grad school with that score? (unless they changed the scoring system or something)

    K: Thank your lucky stars. I stare at similar things for a few seconds and my head feels like it’s going to explode.

    you: It’s a question if read in the way these people intended it to be read. But figuring that out isn’t always trivial.

  6. wahgnube says:

    anita: They’ve changed the GRE pattern (I don’t know what it’s on anymore, but it’s a lot less than 2400). But I am still certain that is a poor score. And I seriously still doubt the *any* grad school bit myself.

    If not the GRE score, punctuation skills.

    In the best interest of productivity, a ‘timeout’ on such discussions is my comment.
