On the 1400 SAT, 1100 was considered to be good enough for all the free scholarships and other stuff.

If 1100 was good on the 1400 SAT, then what is considered "good" on the 2400 SAT?

just curious


i dont know sry...

my essay was about work and how it helps us...

i had some pretty girls in my room too (but i have a girlfriend already so don't tell her)

Ah, the SAT, i took it about 4 times. The last time was just a couple years ago. And you know what, the best score was the last time when i stayed up late. I still got perfect on math, and pretty good on verbal. I think it's mainly the luck of the draw.

[edit on 7-5-2005 by Jamuhn]


a perfect on the math???

GREAT

I sorta regret not taking the LSATs. My parents tried pressuring me into taking that... you know parents... "my son the lawyer", but I had zero interest in it. Another three years of school when I already had a great job lined up didn't seem like the best plan to me. I've heard they can be torturous though, so I'm not sorry I missed them, but it would've been an interesting experiment just to see how I would've done.

SATs were my last adventure in standardized tests though, and I can't say I remember it being all that difficult. I got a 1400 out of 1600 and didn't do the whole prep exam thing that was the trend then. Do people still take those Kaplan courses for hundreds of dollars?


i didn't waste my money on that...

The GMAT is the test for entry into graduate school. LSAT for Law school.

Essays... I don't remember there being essays on the SATs. I remember Verbal and Math, both of which were composed entirely of multiple choice questions. How odd.

When did this happen?


just this year my friend...

the new SAT is made up of 2400 points...

3 sections of reading...

3 for verbal...

and 3 for math...

then 1 (esssay) for the essay...

10 sections of hell...




sounds like a modified version of the ACT

Yeah WyrdeOne that's true. SAT's really have no bearing in the world outside of high school.


Unless they actually correlate with intelligence, which they do. So yes, they do have bearing on the world outside of high school. Reference = Psychological Science. Vol 15(9), Sep 2004, 641.



It's a stupid measure of intelligence.


See above reference for empirical data suggesting the exact opposite.


alot of schools accept ASVAB scores from military people instead of SAT scores.


Because ASVAB scores correlate highly with SAT scores. See the same reference for the data.


Deny ignorance. Don't spread it.
