@MetaphysicalDrama Thank you, I'm absolutely thrilled about the offer!
Re:my horrid GRE scores, I completely agree with you. My research advisor warned me that although I was a strong applicant across other fronts (GPA, recommendations, WS, SoP, courses taken), having a GRE score under 160 might result in my application being completely dismissed from some schools. I am not a strong standardized test taker by any means, and did not do as well as I wanted but instead decided to invest a ton of time and effort into polishing my writing sample and SoP.
I agree that the GRE is absolute bull and am glad that having poor scores did not prevent me from getting in this cycle. So for other applicants/prospective applicants who are worried about GRE scores, there is still hope yet considering my low scores!
