And you thought being a student was hard...

Before my time as a Communication professor at Ivy Tech, I spent many years doing corporate and organizational training. When I decided to become an instructor, I thought it couldn't be much different from what I did for companies. Boy, I couldn't be more wrong! Although I'd never tell my students, I learn more from them than they will ever learn from me!

Need to Study - Would Rather Blog!

And this is why I decided to take the GRE sooner rather than later. I always work myself up into a frenzy, stressing about how I'm going to do. I've taken a couple of practice tests, and I always test in the mid- to upper- 600s in verbal and 700s in math. I know a score in the 1300s should get me into ISU's PhD programs, especially as I already have an MA and got a 4.0, and Ivy Tech has a deal with ISU.

But. Still.

I guess I'm a worrier at heart. I know I'm a perfectionist. This time tomorrow, I'll be testing away, glad it's finally over. Glad to have this part over and done with.

So I can stress about the next part - getting admitted! ;)

  1. Good luck to you!! I hate tests and never do well on them. There are phd programs that do not require the GRE and the one I finally chose was one of those -- online of course :-) with no residency required. My health prevents me from traveling to and from classes on a regular basis (even if it's just once a week or even once a quarter). I never know from day to day if I'll be able to drive.

    Good luck again!! I'll be watching your blog for updates!
