manimgoindowndown Posted May 20, 2017 Share Posted May 20, 2017 I think eve nthough I had a serving of alcohol less than 48 hours and more than 24 hours before the test, I have little tolerance and it triggered my high blood pressure even 36 hours later. Woke up at 3:45 for an 11am exam, 40 minute traffic commute. North Jersey is VERY Hard to get a testing site 2 days beforehand. You basically have to go to Manhattan ($15 toll $60 parking) to get something that will match your timing/sleep schedule ideally. And the traffic could be hellacious. Got a 156 on Quant which is below the 158-160 and later on 163 I got on the preptests from Magoosh/Manhattan/Powerpep Felt a tight chest otherwise wasn't fatigued during the test. Was doing problems out of tiredness/subconsciously instead of actively. Got 6 sections and practiced enough that fatigue thankfully wasn't issue, but had a lto of high BP/anxiety on the second section, again doing things apssively. It sucks because so many of the questions were so much easier than what I practiced, had I been in the right straight of mind I think I would have easily shattered 160. I didn't get my percentiles yet, but anyone know if 156 cuts it for Stanford MSCS in quant? I know 750 on the old scale is what they wanted and at least 700. If this is say, a 720, is that good enough to apply with, anyone know the 95% percentile. I guess I can retake in 3 weeks as well but would have to spend a couple days repreparing and have job interviews to deal with. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
