I'm Going to Grad School!

This morning I woke up at 5:00, an hour before my alarm was set to go off, and I knew there was no way I was going to go back to sleep.  My stomach was too full of butterflies.  So by 5:30 I gave up and just got up to get ready to go and take the GRE.  I had been told that I needed to arrive "at least a half hour before the exam."  So, expecting to have to sign in and then twiddle my thumbs for a half hour before beginning the test, I was a little surprised when I was checked in and taken back to the room to start immediately!  Pretty sure my heart skipped a beat or two.  :)

Well, I went through the test, and as I finished each section I felt like I was doing pretty well, though I really didn't have any way to tell.  Finally, the test was over, and I had the option to either see my scores and have it sent to the college(s) of my choice or cancel the test without ever knowing what I got.  So I held my breath and chose the "view scores" option.  When the next screen popped up, I read it, dismissed it as "not my score," and prepared to move on to the next page to see my real score.  Then I did a double take.  "Wait a minute...Is that my score?...Is...Is that my score?!"  That was essentially the thought that went through my head at that point.  Then I had to work really hard to keep from laughing out loud.  Let's just say that I will not find it difficult to enter any Speech Language Pathology program where the GRE score is an important factor.  :)  So I guess all that hard work and studying paid off.  I'm not sure I'll really believe I got the score I got until I see it in the mail in a few weeks.  But hey, when that comes I'll be able to celebrate again.  :)
