Miller Analogies Test?

For Grad School I could take the GRE or MAT. For some reason I was leaning toward MAT because it is only 60 minutes long, and there is no essay. Not that I am a terrible essay writer, but they just make me nervous because I am a slow writer. So I just took the MAT practice test without studying and well, lets just say it sucked!
I have forgotten so much in the 3 years I have been out of college.

But here''s the unusual part... the online score report says that I would have scored in the 81-99th Percentile had it been a real test.


Are you ready for my raw score..... a whopping 59 out of 100!
I am totally embarrassed even posting that in public, it''s so horrible.

So is that accurate to anyone? Can you really get that many wrong and still have a decent score? I think 80th percentile would be fine for the school I am am applying, although they don''t say what their minimum score is.

So if you''ve taken it does it seem likely that with some studying I could pull off a decent enough grade? Oh I should mention I will only have 3 weeks to study! It was a last-minute decision to go back to school.

Basically...I think taking to MAT is to getting into college for me as going to my high school prom, and having shredded wheat that same morning.

I don''t remember well enough either to say, but it''s likely I did both.
