A little thing called the weather had other plans. (See photo above).
Although technically my test center could still be open tomorrow morning, I am very doubtful.
So, if you, too, are taking the GRE soon, and are wondering "What happens if I get snowed in the day before the test?" - here you go.
1. Are you sure you're not taking the GRE?
You should also check out the Prometric website for severe weather alerts and a list of centers that have been temporarily closed. The site says that your test center should email you 24 hours before, if that is the case. In case you haven't received an email, send one immediately to the Prometric people at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't call their 1-800 number unless you enjoy listening to a robot and her 2-minute ramble. I would use the word "Urgent" in your subject line, and remember to include your confirmation number.
** Let your mode of transport, if it's another person, know about your plans, too!
So now you know, one way or another, that you're not taking the GRE. What next? Here are some suggestions:
2. Enjoy the snow!
3. Do what you've skipped out on studying for the GRE.
4. Prepare the perfect cup of hot cocoa.
5. Watch a documentary.
Please refrain from watching The Secret. The intro is melodramatic and kind of eerie. Also, there are too many meta physicists and philosophers on the screen for comfort. Unless that is your thing.
6. Edit your resume/CV.
7. Skype/Facetime with a loved one.
