21 Tweets that Prove the GRE Test Prep Struggle is Real


At Magoosh, our goal is to make studying for the GRE enjoyable because we know that it’s usually not fun.


Like, really, really not fun:

Tweet: studying when even cleaning the toilet is more appealing. #GREprep

You know it’s bad when you’re more willing to roll up your sleeves and stick your hands in a toilet.



Tweet: I've been watching Dance Moms for approximately 8 hours. #GREprep

While this may be a personal win, debatable whether it’s a GRE prep win. Ok, who are we kidding, #win.



Tweet: alarm clock to wake up for the GRE

Alarms are bad enough. But when you have to threaten yourself??



Tweet: On campus to study for the GRE (play Pokemon)

There are a lot of things I avoid doing by playing Pokemon, so this doesn’t seem that bad.


Tweet: I need to study for the GRE but I can't stop eating ceral and taking buzzfeed quizzes

What cereal are you eating? If it’s Lucky Charms, I understand. If it’s Raisin Bran, then wow, I am so sorry.



tweet: what if instead of GRE scores schools count the # of tears I've cried while attempting to study

This doesn’t have to be your life, Shannon! We will collect your tears. Let us help you!!



Tweet: if this had been an option when I was studying for the #GRE, I would have done so much better

They didn’t administer the test with a paper umbrella and maraschino cherry? Looks like you went to the wrong testing center.



Tweet: I'd rather invest in Blockbuster stock than study for the GRE right now

You can tell this person has truly hit rock bottom.



Tweet: Study for the GRE has been tearing my family apart. Today I yelled at my dad for never making me study Latin

Studying for the GRE has torn a family apart. REPEAT, STUDYING FOR THE GRE HAS TORN A FAMILY APART.


Tweet: I hate it when words are defined by other words that I don't know #GREprep

That sounds redoubtable and rebarbative. (Ok…now we’re compunctious.)


10/10 would not recommend studying for the GRE the week of the GRE

Honestly, they should waive the registration fee for people like you, Sawyer.



Tried studying for the GRE and after 2 mins had to google how to get the area of a square




Tweet: I just spent an hour preparing for my GRE studying & realized I forgot a pen

We wouldn’t judge you if you called it a day.



Tweet: GRE studying goes really well when every time I open my practice book I fall asleep

GRE books can serve as good pillows, but I’m going to guess this wasn’t effective.


Tweet: How's Your GRE Studying Going? Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt says it best.


Tweet: This weekend will be for GRE studying

I need to know what happened next!!! What was the fourth weekend for???



Tweet: Anthem of GRE studying Kanye West

It sounds like your studying sessions were pretty dark. At least you’re not Taylor Swift?



Tweet: Allison, how's the GRE studying going? Leslie Knope

If Leslie Knope isn’t studying effectively, who is???



Tweet: My stress is like 80% from job searching/GRE studying and 20% from Chopped

Chopped is the epitome of stress, so I can’t imagine taking on 100% of your stress.



Tweet: Just googled "Universities that don't require the GRE's". So that's how my GRE studying is going.

So….not good?



Plans for tomorrow: Put off GRE studying, Go see Jurassic World for the 8th time

We don’t blame you, though. Jurassic World was epic.

Tweet: @MagooshGRE is giving me life and mad confidence right now

You give us life, @TFos_!


Tweet: Why couldn't @MagooshGRE teach me math when I was in grade school?!?!

We wish we could have, @Anthurnywinner. We wish we could have.
