    you may have heard that the SAT that we all knew and loved ( :eyebrow: -- actually, i kinda liked it :( ) changed earlier this year. no more quantitative comparisons, no more analogies, more reading, a new writing section, etc.

    well, it looks like the college board and ets want to make similar changes to the gre:


    there goes my strategy of getting it out of the way in my second year... :meh:

    i guess it's a welcome change, since those words in the friggin' analogies section are re-damn-diculous. :mad:

    (for instance, looking at around 10 practice questions each in analogies, antonyms, and sentence completion, i got 45% correct on anologies, 92% on antonyms, and 100% on sentence completion. things that make ya go " :confused: ")

    anyway, just givin' ya the heads up now. :hyper:
