Why do it again?

I'm toying with the idea of re-writing the GRE.

The GRE is a standard test required by many schools to enter their graduate and doctoral programs. When I took it way back to enter graduate school, my good scores really tipped the scales in my favor in admissions.

I'm not thinking about going back for another degree, but I'm considering retaking for a few reasons. Most importantly, if I scored well enough on it, I could become an instructor for some of the agencies that offer GRE preparation classes. Our students could really benefit from GRE prep classes, and having someone on-site who could teach them might help. Plus, I could earn a little extra cash.

Plus, there's the masochistic question. "Do I still have 'it'?"
