Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

So I took the exam…  §

So I took the exam this morning for the first “official” time. I don’t yet know if I will try it again next month. My composite score is 1350 (710Q/640V), which is solid but not incredible. No analytical, of course, because that has been sliced out of the test.

I’ve never really faced the clock to such an extent on any other standardized test in my life. I still don’t lend this test much credence. I’d be surprised if most anthropology programs do, either, given the incredible cultural bias of this exam. No wonder my uncle (who now holds a Ph.D.) really disliked it so much when he was trying to get into graduate school. He took it several times, if I remember correctly…

But I’m not sure I really want to do that. (sigh)
