OK. So I recently took the computerized general GRE. In my practice tests, I was scoring between 790 and 800 on the quantitative section. It seems that I was taken by surprise by the computer's adaptive questions, because some were more difficult than I expected. I ended up with a 730 quantitative on the real thing. I plan on taking the test again, since I am positive that now that I know the true difficulty of the math problems, I can adequately prepare myself for certain types of problems I know I often get wrong. I should be able to end up with a >=780 with not much of a problem. Now, my question is, am I spending too much time on this? Is this score more of a threshold and less of a scale? i.e. Do schools only care if your above a certain cutoff, like 700 or will the difference between a 730 and a 780/800 matter in regards to schools or assistantships?
