    I got a 170V and 163Q. Is that high enough to hold the opinion that the GRE is bullshit?

    The verbal section tests whether or not you're a native english speaker. The quant section tests whether you've spent the money and time required to practice a very specific skill set for solving high school level math problems quickly. 
    This test asks whether you're an American with money.  And as you can see by my scores, I totally am. I got in to my program. It's all thanks to the ingenuity, hard work and dedication... of my grandparents who immigrated here and managed to accrue some financial security.

    I call BS. Major BS. Do you have citations for any of these claims, such as how the GREs show that individuals are "naturally gifted" or willing to "work hard enough"? Or that "most people who think that the GRE is stupid and useless also have low GRE scores"? Have you ever heard of test anxiety? How about subject-specific intelligence? Or perhaps just thinking outside the box?
     
    This is the truth: the GREs are great at measuring one thing - how well you do on the GREs. The end.
