Except this time my day didn’t start with it….
After trying and failing to get into law school (I suspect the class of 2010 just filled up before my application got there), I was left with a year to find something else. I didn’t want to try getting a job just yet; I figured I’d go for another degree.
I decided to try for the Masters of Business Administration. Sounds simple enough, but I had to take the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) and do at least average to have a prayer of getting into most public schools.
Well… I didn’t do average; in fact, I didn’t even do decently below average. I scored in the bottom 10% on the scale of people who’ve taken it. That amounts to a 380 on a scale of 200-800. Now, I still have questions as to why a business major needs to know the finer points of Algebra, Algebra 2 and Geometry, but that’s what was on the test, along with the standard logical reasoning questions.
The only difference was, the GMAT made the test I took for law school (LSAT) look like a joke. So, I spent $400 for what seems like nothing. I can still get my MBA, I’ll just have to go a private college and pay a little more for it.
Such is life, I suppose.
