Last week, I realized I never got my Literature GRE score, though they were supposed to be ready in December. So, I emailed GRE and got this message:
An examinee score report was mailed to you on December 16, 2008. Please allow sufficient time for mail delivery from Princeton, New Jersey, USA.Allow enough time? Most of the time a letter takes five days. Nearly five weeks had gone by.
Then, a few days later I got the letter, with a sticker on it explaining it had been lost in the mail because the address was wrong. Do you want to see how it was wrong? Compare the following addresses:
Just the switching of the order of the city and the zip code, as reflected by the fact that I had to put a German address into an online form of an American company! You'd think people were smarter than that, really. How hard is it to realize that they were just switched? Ha ha.
Anyway, I am quite happy with my score. I'm positive it was a good 100 points (or more) higher than it would have been had I not studied like crazy. Next time, I'm going to dominate that test.
