What was your SAT score?

1420, old test.

Took it in 2004, at the begining of my junior year.

I didn't study, either.

Don't remember...my SAT score was in Roman numerals.

Back in '72 we just took it like a pop quiz...no fancy study groups, extra classes or books.

My GPA alone got me into college...didn't even need a SAT score.

Never took 'em.

At the time we did them in high school I had NO intention of every going to college. So I never ended up taking them. I had to take an "entrance exam" to the community college when I did go.

Pretty ironic....I never intended to go to college, then ended up going and continuing on to my Master's degree too.

1320/1600, good enough for a National Merit Scholarship back in '86.

I'm with K.T. I also didn't take them, also had to take an "entrance exam" and also went on to a Masters Degree.

I also never took the SAT. I knew by my Junior year what I wanted to do, and it doesn't involve a 4 year degree.

I suppose I should post my score, 30. In hindsight, the test is kindof stupid. It is clearly not a measure of intelligence or sucess in college. I know a guy that got a 32 and dropped out of community college due to grades (no partying involved to my knowledge).

I think 1230/1600 (or 1280) back in early '94/late '93. I know i took the last test before they readjusted the average to 1000. i do remember i was 91st percentile.

Didn't have to take it. Ha! So there, academia! In yo' face! Kinda....

I was an "adult" student by the time I went to college so I just had to take the ACT. Don't remember(or care) what I scored on it. I dropped out in my junior year anyway. College is 'spensive, people!

1390 in '76 or '77. If only I'd read all those stupid books that they asked questions about on the verbal part of the test... Took the ACT too - don't know why though - 31.

1270, but i would have done better if I wasn't at the hospital with my girlfriend until 2 in the morning the night before. Shoulda been given a 100point handicap for doing it on 3 hours of sleep!

That's what I got back in... well, whenever it was I took it.... 28 out of 36. 36 is such a random 'perfect score' number on the ACT. 28 was good enough to get me an extra $3000 per year scholarship to the college I attended. That was good money back when tuition was under $80,000 a year or whatever it is these days....

Please. It's not like we're providing the answer key or trying to convince him to use a #2 1/2 pencil lead on the test. I'd like to brag that I got a higher score, but that didn't happen.

I do know a guy who got a 36 on his ACT. He opted to go to a local commuter school, made big $$$ by doing so, got out in 3 years, and is a software guru who has been running a successful business. The ACT score didn't mean crap to him. The valedictorian of our class about wigged out because she only got a 35/36 on the ACT and was beaten by a classmate. She ended up at MIT and what became of her I have no clue. Did that meander enough for you?

In the end, standardized tests are about getting you into college and hopefully providing a means to justify some scholarships to help defray the enormous cost of attending a university.

Beyond that, they don't matter.

1050, but I realy wasn't focsed on the test...some of my friends died that week, and that day was also the day of their funerals.

Car crash....the engine of the car was literally on the driver's lap....50mph right into an oak tree due to his tie rod snapping. Only one of the 5 in the car survived....

That was a pretty messed up week.

1330/1600 in '01 .... SAT has got to be the stupidest test I've ever taken. My SAT II's were much better but they made more sense to me and so I studied harder.

Never took them. According to tests I've taken I am smarter though then 97%-99% of the kids back in the 90's and 95%-97% then everybody who applied for the Navy, supposedly. Tests suck though and are not capable of testing anything that matters

Too true.

Tests are good for bragging rights only...and even then its bragging about something that measures nothing anyway.
