Mess With Yo' Head.

A couple of weeks ago, shortly before I took the GREs, I got a letter from the Ohio State University, one of the universities to which I had applied for graduate studies. The letter said that my grades weren't good enough for acceptance, and that I should forward my GRE scores once I got them, and then they'd let me know. (Only it sounded more formal than that.) My online application status says that they're still thinking about letting me in, but so far I haven't heard anything, which isn't too surprising considering they only got my scores maybe a week or two ago.

When I got home from class this evening, I got an e-mail that read: "The Office of Student Financial Aid encourages you to apply for the following scholarship opportunities available to women attending Ohio State during the 2007-2008 academic year."

Either their office of financial aid knows something I don't, or they're screwing with me.


  1. So now do we have to write GRE or only GRE subject test (Math) or both if we want to join a grad college or they are all just moot now ?

    1. It depends on the particular university program you're applying to. I eventually finished graduate programs at two universities that didn't require GREs at all, at least not for the programs of which I was a part. If they DO require GREs, they'd be subject specific. There's no reason to take a GREs test for anthropology if you want to gain admittance to an English program. Again, though, I'd look at the specific program requirements.
