I am taking the GRE–the general graduate school exam–again and applying to doctoral schools in the United States. I studied this time, so I hope my exam scores improve. They were alright before; however, I would like them to be better. While it has been difficult to make myself study for the exam, I think even my medium amount of preparation will help. Now, I will remain calm and apply the skills I learned.
I still don’t know if applying to doctoral school is the best course for me, but I would like to try. Doctoral school would allow me to use my research skills to a fuller extent than now. I would (hopefully) be paid to learn about topics I love during my time in school and after. Also, it would be cool to have people call me “doctor.”
