Not as high as I was expecting...

So, I got my score. Not good.

I have learned two things thus far, which I'm sure is just the beginning. 1) I am not as smart as I think I am and 2) my instincts are not very reliable. This is rather humbling for me, with a touch of humiliation.

At least I've still got my day-job - being wife and mother.

Jess - Do not be so hard on yourself. Questioning your intelligence is ridiculous. You are an amazing and brilliant woman. Don't allow a piece of paper with some numbers on it make you feel like less of a person. If this is your dream, continue with it! :)

There is an art to taking those tests, which is why most people spend a ridiculous amount of money on the class to prep. I had the same experience when I took the GRE several years ago. It's so frustrating...

It's not you, it's the test.

And you have a wonderful hubby who really KNOWS you! I agree w/ what he wrote. :)

A test can't tell someone how smart they are. (Heck, I failed the seismic portion of the Calif. PE and I'm pretty smart ;)

You just keep pursuing the dream you feel led to pursue, whether that's being a mom, a lawyer, or both. You are very smart and you can do it.
