Define target score ... I would have *preferred* to do better, but this was pretty much exactly how I really expected to have done (based on how I felt after the test)

Yes.  I guessed my score with a range of plus/minus 3 pts.  I felt like I had taken enough preptests to predict how well I had done at the end of each section.

Pure numbers-wise:  GMU:  3.15-3.83/158-166....Me: 3.15(3.26 degree)/161.

This scares the hell out of me.


Wow.  No wonder I missed 7 on RC.  I read it as "your target school".  Apparently the booze is starting to have some effects.

I'd set myself 167 as the threshold where i wouldn't worry about retaking, and that's what i got... 'course, i was aiming higher, but wasn't everyone?

Yeah, I guessed my RAW score within 2 pts (I predicted 80 RAW for a 163--optimistic scale.  Reality: 78 RAW for a 161.  I was close on the breakdown too.  I guessed: -4, -4, -7, -5.  Actual: -3, -6, -7, -6)

I didn't make it to my "target" score, but I did write down the number of questions and score I thought I'd get after the exam (and reading the PMs a bit).  I was dead on.

Yeah. I came accross my PM notes from when we could still cancel and saw that the final conservative estimate I'd given myself was exactly the same number as the credited responses and the corresponding score. In fact, Both the LRs were spot on and the RC gained one while the Games lost one.

Kinda funny.
