Delta miles normally cost $0.01 per mile plus $30 to transfer from one account to another. That’s $80 in transfer fee for 5k miles and you haven’t even paid the person yet. Buying miles is in 2000 mile increments and 6000 miles is $210.00. These usually aren’t the best way to get miles.

Took second GRE exam today, 2 point score increase to get me to 322 (165Q/157V). Feel like I could’ve done better and can’t stop thinking did I really do my best. My scores are around the average of schools I plan to apply to, or a smidge higher (1-2 points). Would apply Fall 2023. I also have total testing fatigue and need to take a break from studying to get my personal life situated / enjoy summer. Is it worth my sanity to try to retake again in a few months? Maybe winter? Or just accept it
