"Never Saw Your GRE Scores. Please tell us what they are. I used to be a good tester."

A good tester, eh?... Mind is a complex topic.
What do you think the GRE really measures?
If you don't think it's very valid, why did you ask for my scores in the first exchange about this?

I knew I had not posted them, because I think
context is important. Many of our finest pioneers of science might score poorly on our GRE
since they are unfamiliar with modern words...and if they can score poorly, there are others who are similarly unfamiliar with our culture who have good minds. In my case, though I attended good public schools, I spent grades 10-12 exploring outside topics more than school subjects. In college I generally held a stressful fulltime job while attending ...sometimes part time.
Then after 4800 hours as a postman and nearly a year being homeless with poor nutrition, I studied biology for two months and took the GRE in biology and the general areas.

How many others have stories which reflect mine and whose story mine reflects.

Way to go on that race walk !
