Categories I Wish Were on The GRE
I’m taking the GRE in about a month. That’s the Graduate Record Exam, to those of you that don’t know and are thus better for not knowing. I’m feeling confident- after some practice skills, my math has come back and I’m not concerned about the writing portion (if I do say so myself. Shoot me.) it’s just irritating that I have to take ALL of it to prove to some humanities program that I am worthy. If these categories were on it, I’d be acing this shit up and down.
Writing portion: Explain why Divergent was a failure as a book, both in craft and attempted allegory
Writing Comprehension: Read these Battlestar Galactica scripts and answer questions about the origin of the Cylons because yea, it was pretty confusing and I finally understand it
Quantitative Portion: keep that on there, I like this section.
Choose all the vocab words that describe cats’ behavior.
Logic Section: Here’s your company’s shared drive: organize the files into something that makes sense
Use Prezi to present a timeline of the events of How I Met Your Mother
Pixar movies all have the same tedious plot: write an essay supporting this argument.
Analogies (bring these back!)
Millenials: Just a Stereotype or the Fall of Civilization? [Choose a Side and Provide Examples]
Create a Comprehensive List of Your Most Disturbing Horror Films
Critique several examples of blogs aimed at “women’s interests”
