Say hello to Olabode! This CS major overcame challenges in Text Completion and Geometry questions to rock the GRE. 🙂

About Me: I’m from Mobile, Alabama, and I attend Auburn University. I’m majoring in Computer Science, and I hope to get a Master’s Degree in Human Centered Computing. Ultimately, I want to get a PhD in Computer Science or Human Computer Interaction. In my free time, I love to play basketball or do anything that requires me to move, jump, or run.

Biggest Challenge: I really struggled with Text Completions and most of the Geometry concepts. I can say that I really pounded the pavement when it came to vocabulary. At one point, it seemed to be an insurmountable task to learn all of the words, but the flashcard apps that Magoosh has available were really helpful. In regards to the Geometry concepts, I kept reviewing the Magoosh videos, which proved to be really helpful.

If I had to re-do my studies, I wouldn’t really change anything. The Magoosh plan was really thorough. I felt really confident when I took the test and afterwards.

Helpful Tips for Others: The best tip I can give to someone who’s studying for the GRE is to just trust the process and put in the time. There are will be days that you don’t do as well but things will work out in the end.

By the way, students who use Magoosh GRE improve their scores by an average of 8 points on the new scale (150 points on the old scale.) Click here to learn more.
