I'm really to hear this guys... I wasn't a constant poster - and I elected to not even take this test and prob sit out a cycle or two - but I know how hard you two worked. (This applies to everyone who did worse then expected or didn't meet their goals)

I know it's super hard for you guys to contemplate retaking and sitting out a cycle, but you guys HAVE the skills, you got blindsided by a wayward test, but that's NOT gonna happen again. It would be a shame to waste all your time and effort by settling.

You def won't need as much time to prepare this time around, and I'm confident that you'll take this test and kill it.

In the mean time, drown your sorrows with beer.... beer is good.

anyone want to message me to rant and rave about their scores they're welcome to do so =)


Thank you so much. Your words mean a lot.

You guys are all really helping to temper this, and I can't thank you enough for the kindness.

Yeah, it's pretty bad. Not even a contender for T14.

I honestly am just in disbelief. I don't understand how I could have scored so low. I haven't scored this low SINCE JULY.

Exactly the same boat I'm in rn. Since it's my first test, I'm attributing to anxiety/nerves. Really, there isn't a better explanation.


:cry: :cry: :cry:

The best part is how there is not a chance in holy hell that I won't manage to be MORE anxious if I retake.

That's how I feel as well. I've been struggling with anxiety my entire life and I'm surprised it hasn't caught up with me before now.
I am thinking of starting to see a therapist for anxiety issues. It can't hurt.

It's just painful for me to know that there was nothing I could have differently to have prevented this. I was doing everything right... And I still fucked up.

It's not one of these mistakes where you can just say "oh yeah, well... I didn't study enough". It's a more fundamental problem that is a lot more difficult to solve...


Ughhh I so feel for you because same. I didn't think my anxiety effected me so much that day, but there's just no other explanation, you're right. I spent the entire month of September doing all of this yoga and meditation and breathing exercises and setting up a routine and blahblahblah, trying to put myself in as calm a mindset as possible. Much good it did. If you ever want to chat, feel free to message.

Dumb question (because I realize it might very well be a no no request)- but for the PDFs of the test, is there a way to save it as a PDF? The document's properties doesn't allow for saving of content, but allows printing.

Any ideas from tech wizards?

thanks for the confidence!

CCN down. I'm a splitter, so I don't know what to expect.

congrats on your score PNJ.


Thanks. I also feel like I could have done better since it's slightly below my avg, but my GPA is so low that I'm locked out of schools where any higher of a score could make any difference anyway. Here's to hoping NW takes me.

Decent-ish. Enough that I'm not worried about admission to any of the schools on my list. Slightly worried that I might not get as much $$ as I want. But we will see

That awkward moment when I'm ecstatic to find out I got a 161 and everyone else is in disbelief how they scored so low with the same score lol. It was my first test I went in cold on but I had had mono and was so miserable that I ended up having to completely Christmas tree the last logic game because I ran out of time, but I'm only gunning for a regional school so I'm happy I don't need to retake in December. Still feel awkward as shit being on here though lmfao :?
