Today, my wife Amy turns 23 but that’s not all she has to celebrate. She just took the GRE today (yes, on her birthday – it was the first available date for January) and scored a 770 out of 800 on the math. In order to get into the Chemical Engineering PhD programs at most schools you need a 700 or perhaps a 750 to be considered. She just graduated in December from UF’s ChemE Undergraduate Program and is currently applying to the graduate programs at North Carolina State, University of South Carolina, Rice University, Georgia Tech, and the University of Houston for the Fall of 2005. If anybody reading this works in the graduate admissions office of any of those schools, you should admit her. She’s the smartest person I ever knowed.
