Slept like a champ last night, woke up with plenty of time and ate a good breakfast. Not too jittery, actually excited and genuinely looking forward to taking the test. 90 minutes of light review before I head over to the test center now. I can't imagine how great it'll feel to not have the GMAT tainting my every thought and plan.
I'll be back with (hopefully) good news this afternoon!

I actually scored on the lower end of my practice CATs, but certainly not low enough to think about retaking the thing!
Oh no, you too blew the Quant What happened?
Anyway, congrats on a great overall score!
I would've liked a 51 but I'd hardly consider a Q50 "blowing the quant".
I just couldn't get my brain geared up for the math section at first. I stumbled on some uber-simple math in the first ten problems which forced me to guess on one of the last 4 problems for fear of running out of time. All my practice tests put me at 51 or 1-2 questions off of a 51 so I'm sure that was the case here.
No point in second guessing anything though. I'm more than happy with the results. I keep in mind that I spend three months studying for this test so I could get into a top graduate program. I don't consider this test an extension of myself or a badge of my true abilities to be worn around. I did well enough to meet, and exceed, my goal so thinking about what could've been or retaking to ace the test has no allure for me.
Unfortunately I'm planning to right a killer debrief when I return from partying in the islands (Trinidad & Tobago) as I don't have any time before then (leave Saturday at 3:30AM). Perhaps I'll find time tomorrow afternoon, but I'm having ~10 people over tonight for a big celebration so I may not be in the best of shape.
Thanks SO much to everyone on here! I should have a bit of a surprise for you guys when I write up the debrief as my small way of saying Thanks
in 48 hours!
