and got drunk with my family every day for the week prior to the test. Besides the liquid refreshments aiding me, I looked over a few tests. I did not time them at all and worked on one section at a time. I graded each section immediately after while the questions and my rationale were still fresh in my mind. Then I examined each question I got wrong to figure out exactly where in my reasoning I went wrong. The questions are basically slightly different iterations of each other, so once you figure out the pattern, they aren't too bad. It didn't hurt any that I kick ass on the logic games section. I didn't practice those at all; they just come naturally to me. That helped me focus a bit more on the other sections. In summation: I just worked on a few and concentrated really hard on what I was doing wrong. Quality vs. quantity worked well for me ;) Good luck!
You can always wait, see where you get in, then call each school and ask if a June test score would affect scholarship consideration. If they say yes, you literally have nothing to lose by taking it again. If you did much better, you could always say, "Hey! Pony up the dough or I'm sitting out a year and going elsewhere."
Thanks for noticing. You'd be surprised how few do (or maybe they're so busy freaking out they bypass it). One guy actually wrote me and suggested my strong life experience would help propel my application or some crap like that. Yikes. Anyway, congrats on Hastings, and I'm sure you'll bag some more really soon. Rock it on, dude.
from a retake! Go for it--it seems like many people do much better 2nd time around. I went up 11 pts.
