After talking in class last night about the SAT I wondered about what does it really prepare us for? I don't think this test should be a major factor of whether or not you get into college. It just seems to me that the people who score highly on it may have a five-syllable vocabulary and be a math whiz...but how does that show you they are truely more prepared for a certain college than someone else who may have scored lower?

Post SAT
I agree with you Ashley. I scored so poorly on the SAT and had so much trouble getting in to a college. I was accepted to a junior college and then went on to a major univeristy (which turned me down initially due to my scores). I never dropped below a 3.6 GPA my entire time in undergrad and never under a 3.8 in grad school. I definately dont think the SAT shows ability.

I soooooooooo agree with this. I scored poorly on this too, and I think that schools now are looking at other things as well as scores. But it is getting harder for students as well, bc the average scores for universities have gone up quite a bit!
