Since when are SAT scores discredited Kathryn? While they are
representative of aptitude, which could be construed as applied genius,
they do most definitely run closer to representing intelligence as
anything so easily discredited as say, grades, which are more a measure
of applied work and well targeted social genius. you should actually
jump on the SAT wagon with this, as women average higher on SATs then
men....of course they are typically used to using better language (yeah
I'm stereotyping here, so what).
