Wait for your October scores and if you have not got what you think as a 'good' score, then you can go ahead and reinstate your november scores. You might waste a couple of hundred dollars by doing this, but I still think its worth it.

Same question: does this really work? (hoping mike164 is still around, or anybody else kind enough to share their experience )
Pretty annoying, this ETS contradiction is. "Once a score is canceled, it cannot be reinstated" is clearly written on your answer sheet, but they said they still have that $30 reinstatement service..

It would have been interesting to find out if he managed to get a perfect score on the questions he did complete. Currently, I'm preparing to take a [url=]gre practice test and I'm just wondering what my options will be if I do badly. I feel like I need as much info as possible just to boost my confidence level.

How much does a site pay to have people try to establish a presence on message boards and then link them in a way that seems innocent? Is it a full time job and do you work for a lot of different sites or just something that you do on the side? The reason I'm interested is that it's hard for me to imagine that kind of advertising is cost effective since it's so much more labor intensive than buying ads or using spambots, but the evidence clearly proves me wrong if it's being done. I guess it has the potential to pay off since people might actually take it seriously if it's done subtly enough, although here it's not really very subtle. Is it more intended for people who come across the thread via google without wider context?
I am a 4th year chemical engineering major at UC Berkeley. I want to attend graduate school for the same subject. Here are my stats:
GRE: 690 Verbal; 800 Math (don't have writing score yet)
2 year of research in an old group.
1 summer and this fall semester in a new research group.
The question is should I retake the GRE? The verbal score is low, although I know it is considered high for engineers. I am just concerned because my GPA isn't high enough to compensate for it. Should I retake the test?

Or they could pay me 80 bucks to curb stomp them.
