- essays: won't know for a month or so but I am confident that i did just fine
- quantitative: 42 which is the 61st percentile. I wanted the 50th percentile so I am thrilled!
- verbal: 38 which is the 83rd percentile. I wanted the 90th percentile but hey, as long as I got the math section I could care less what the verbal was
- overall score: 660 which is the 82nd percentile which is well above what I needed.

- Essays. You write an essay on an issue and a second essay on an analysis of an argument. You have 1 hour to do this...30 minutes each. In this case you get an overall score out of 6.
- Quantitative. Math. yuck. In this one you are given 75 minutes and 37 questions. In this section you get a score out of 51.
- Verbal. This is reading comprehension, sentence correction, etc. You are again given 75 minutes but this time 41 questions.
- Essays: 4. They don't care if you write great essays. They just want to know that you can write something cohesive.
- Quantitative: at least the 50th percentile, which is 38
- Verbal: at least the 50th percentile, which is 29
- An overall score of at least the 50th percentile, which is 550
- Essays: at least a 4.
- Quantitative: I need a 38.
- Verbal: Personally, I would love to get a 41 which is the 92 percentile.

Yay! I have made the cut! ING has invited me to open up one of their new Thrive chequing accounts! No fees baby! Well, I suppose there are fees for things like NSF or other stuff but in general...no fees!
I plan to use it initially as my own chequing account and if that goes well then Boris and I may switch over and make it our joint account as well.
The most exciting part for me is that I have been keeping $2,000 in my chequing account with TD for about 6 years now. 6 years! And while I haven't had to pay any fees in that time I haven't exactly earned anything on that $2,000. Now I can!
Seriously, I am thrilled.
Are you going to get a Thrive account?
