Just took the general GRE, and I now realize that I should've studied harder for the verbal section.

Writing section wasn't too bad...

Verbal section was a little bizarre for me...scored a 610.

Quantitative section had me a little dupped...but I managed a 770.

Good enough for me, I'm applying to grad schools after working for three years.

BUT NOW...IT' TO THE PUB!!!:D

GRE is done on computer, it scores it immediately (not certified scores, IIRC) and the test gets harder the better you do

As far as a true to color PUB...LA is devoid. But there are a few places that come close.

Darien,

I didn't study for the GRE...and I wish I had. I was feeling stupid during portions of the verbal section and it showed on my score. Definitely study for the verbal.

But really, by PUB I simply meant a place that sells hard liquor. "TO THE PUB!!!" is an expression my friends and I developed/picked-up in the UK and now we apply it to any time we want to get sloshed.:D

But, my wife and I decided to stay home after all...[homer voice]BOOORRRRING!![end homer voice]

rgwalt:

The GRE stuff on the computer test said 12 days max to get the 'referee score' on essays if they are typed on the computer and up to six weeks if written out.


TEEZLE:

I'm sorry...I didn't mean to imply I am from the UK...my friends and I have visited multiple times for weeks-months at a time (my best friend actually lived in and around the UK for about 2 years straight). Also, my aunt lives in Florence, Italy so I go to visit her when I can. I can say this: Europeans, in general, know how to have a great time any day of week...that's where I picked up my partying ways.
