Graduate Record Examination which is an entrance exam to graduate school. This test is designed by a group of malevolent pedagogues who seem to think that just because we do not use words such as obsequious or pusillanimous in our everyday speech means we would certainly not be a qualified graduate student. It also tests math skills learned anywhere from 5-10 years ago in the quantitative section since we all have committed that geometry into our long term memory it shouldn't be a problem RIGHT!
Person 1: Dude I have been learning 300 words a day for the GRE I know I'm going to do GREAT!
Person 2: Man I changed my major because I could never get high enough on that damn GRE.
Person 1: (the next day) Man I still only got a 390 on verbal how the hell does this happen I'm never going to get into grad school!
