1020 SAT score? That's borderline retarded
How does someone so dumb get so rich? Taxpayers should a refund for the money we give these schools.share

Where does it say that?share
The article I read said they paid the SAT company to add 400 points bumping it to 1420.share
The 1020 was the daughter's PSAT score.share
PSAT is easier than the SAT.share
Maybe they are, maybe they're not. I don't remember. That's not the point. You claimed it was the SATs. The majority of kids today don't take the PSATs seriously. Even less so than the SATs. I'm sure she is a moron, since she had to cheat. Again though, not the point.share
Ah, okay. I thought you were commenting in relation to Lori Loughlin's SAT score (not her daughter's). I was wondering how and why you knew that. LOL.share
Intelligence is heritable.share
Your comment on intelligence is ironic given ...well, the unintelligent expression of your comment on intelligence.
In other words.....1020 is apparently a stretch goal for you.
Although not as commonly-used as 'hereditary', 'heritable' is a proper word and Thrillhouse has correctly used it in this context.
I know how tempting it is to call out Thrillhouse, especially when he's being so rude about someone else's intelligence, but in this instance the criticism doesn't hold.
It's unwieldy and a vain attempt to seem more intelligent than the author is based on his past ramblings.
ANY criticism of him holds.
It's unwieldy and a vain attempt to seem more intelligent than the author is based on his past ramblings.Perhaps, but fair is fair, especially when there are so many, many valid reasons to call out this poster's idiocy. share
I think Noufa below just unlocked the cipher of why someone as demonstrably imbecilic as Thrillhouse might look down on a 1030 score.
He must have taken it when the max score had been raised to 2400 before it was recently dropped to 1600 again.
That would make MUCH more sense why TH would say a 1030 score is borderline retarded. A 1030 in his time would be equivalent to a sub 700 score in our day. That really is borderline developmentally disabled.
So if you're reading this Thrillhouse, a 1030 out of 1600 is almost 64% on today's SATs, which would be the equivalent of about 1545 out of 2400 when you took it. So don't worry because she's not actually dumber than you are, you've still got her beat by a long shot.
You think thrillhouse took an SAT???
These people who are going to ridiculous lengths to get into some particular school are fools. And the universities have become little more than leftist indoctrination centers turning out over-schooled yet under-educated spoiled brats.share
At least back then I don't think you were allowed to major in Harry Potter yet.share
The irony is that we have an elitist class of very privileged, very rich, and predominantly white graduates lecturing poorer, less privileged, and less exclusively educated people about their 'privilege' (see also Hollywood).share
school is a scam. just like healthcare and taxesshare
1020 would be average.
there's no shame in being average.
most people, by definition, are average.
i wish i was average in most ways!
for whatever it's worth, i fondly remember pining for lori loughlin back when she was on the soap opera 'edge of night.' she might have been my first celebrity crush.
maybe along with the blonde vocalist from the human league.
This is what I thought. Like a 100 IQ, it's totally average. The people who score higher are prone to brag & skew impressions of what's "normal".share
IQ scores are relative. SAT scores are absolute.share
1020 is below average, especially for her demographic. There are huge demographic differences.
To put it in perspective, if you answer every question wrong, the minimum score is 800, and you'd expect to get at least 20% by guessing.
an article i found shows that the average sat score for u.s. whites was 1123, and for all groups the average was 1068.
that's one article, and i didn't verify it with any other sources.
but assuming it's correct, 1020 would be below somewhat below average.
though certainly it's not such a poor score that anyone ought to call her borderline retarded, as the op did.
it's almost certainly within one standard deviation of the mean.
There's also some self-selection in who takes the test. Teenagers usually don't burn off a Saturday unless they plan on attending college. That group already skews Asian/white & upper class.share
So, the people taking the SATs (including people with relatively low scores like Olivia Jade) tend to be smarter than the national average?share
that would be the conclusion i would make.
if the pool of people taking the sat are on average more intelligent than the general population, then a person with a slightly below average mark is almost certainly slightly more intelligent than average.
the sat presumably doesn't quite equate to iq, but it's likely safe to say that people who do well on the test are on average more intelligent that people who do less well.
Yeah, that makes sense, although it doesn't preclude the possibility of a real dummy choosing to take the test and failing miserably.share
Anyone can study for the SATs. If you study, you'll score higher. It has more to do with knowledge of academic subjects like math and reading, not intelligence.
Olivia Jade is a slacker and party girl. She doesn't have the ambition or desire for an Ivy League school. I would be curious to know what her grades were at USC, but that could be another scam considering that she was on the yacht of a USC official.
oh absolutely, it's a test and you can study for a test.
on average, we can say that people who get higher marks will tend to have higher iqs when looking at groups.
but it doesn't tell us anything about a specific individual.
The test isn't about IQ. For example, you'd score lower on the math portion of the test if you never learned algebra. That's about being familiar with the subject matter, not IQ.
When I took the SAT exam, its purpose was to determine how well a student would perform in college. After that proved false, they changed it to how well a student is prepared for college.
it's not an iq test, no disputing that.
but it is the case that higher iq people will tend to do better. people with higher iqs are able to comprehend, take in new information more quickly & effectively, etc.
not only because of iq, but because other characteristics like diligence & self-restraint tend to correlate with iq.
not out to have an iq battle here.
i have already ceded that sats are not iq tests.
but on average, higher iq groups will score more highly on sats.
Agreed, I just think IQ is overrated. Environment has a lot to do with it. For instance, the middle class tend to do better on SATs than the poor because they have more opportunities, exposure to better schools, better nutrition and study for those tests. Also, culture and parental influence plays into giving children the belief that they can succeed by studying and working hard. Lastly, there's motivation. I tend to do extremely well on written tests because I'll study for hours each day for months for a better future. Meanwhile, I knew people from my neighborhood who bragged about failing classes and dropping out of school because they had already given up.
BTW, I don't really believe Loughlin's kids are dumb, just not motivated. Perhaps Lori should have attended college herself instead of forcing her kids. It's never too late.
Maybe it's changed, but back in my day, they punished you for guessing. Missing 80% would more than cancel out the 20% you'd gain by guessing. My math teacher admonished us to never guess.
i'm not american, & have only heard of the sat through movies, news, etc.
are the tests multiple choice?
mix of multiple choice & long answer?
I took mine in 96, and it was 2 sections. Verbal/written and Math. The verbal part was essay, multiple choice, reading comprehension, analogies etc. The math section was problem solving, pattern recognition, equations, and some other stuff I don't really remember because I bombed out on the math section, but nearly aced the verbal/written section.
Sadly, my score was horrid and I never retook it. I ended up dropping out of college. It ended up being the best decision I made, because debt-free life is so fucking sweet.
college is for suckers. i dropped out of that garbage after 3 years. only wish i said fuck it and left earlier. started traveling the world after i quit with all the money i saved from dropping out. spend a lot less on that and learned a lot more from that than any bullshit schoolshare
There's something to this. Businesses once used aptitude tests in hiring. Federal bureacracies (like the military & post office) still do. But private sector employers got tired of fighting lawsuits over allegations of bias in the tests.
So businesses basically outsourced the whole thing to colleges. They started demanding a degree for jobs that really didn't require them. It shifted a significant financial burden on to young people & didn't solve the issue of bias, as this whole scandal has shown.
If you can get around this through networking, more power to you.
Great post. These tech companies like Google and Apple were actually given waivers by the government so they don't have to comply with the civil rights acts. They require employees to take essentially IQ tests. That's how their workforce gets around being 99% white Asian and male. Your small business wouldn't be allowed to do that.share
haha u wanna have a buncha women and negros working on most complicated technology on the internet? u should be able to hire whoever you wantshare
Written by a lazy slacker who dropped out of school.share
school is 4 foolzshare
Poor people have that attitude which is why they stay poor.
I guess all your medical doctors are "foolz".
i aint that poor. used to be a millionaire back when i was 22. been to 50 countries and 6 continents. medical doctors gotta do the schooling but for most degrees its a waste of time and moneyshare
Doctors don't even take classes in nutrition. No you don't need to go to school to be a drug dealer. What difference has it made? Everyone is so fat and sick despite all this trillion dollar health care. We didn't used to have that problem.share
doctors are a scam most of the time they just hustlers trying to milk you like a cow for every dollar you are worth. best to take care of ur body and not need to go to the doctors. prevention is the best medicine. doctors are the biggest most destructive drug dealers aroundshare
Yeah man, Tim Apple probably lives in a trailer and is missing some teeth. Oh by the way, I really really care about the less fortunate.share
i only got 1200 on mine, the sats are a pretty standard iq accessment, i didnt expect muchshare
who cares about sat scores. she is too sexy to need to be smartshare
1070 is about average, so anything above that would be an above-average score. A 1250 places you in the 81st percentile, that is, in the top fifth of test takers, which is very good. A 1350 puts you in the top 9%, making it a strong score. A 1400 is in the 94th percentile, the top 6% of all test takers. And any score 1500+ puts you in the coveted top 1%.
She was basically a slightly below average basic bitch.
Her daughter received a 1420 on her SAT test, which was 400 points higher than a PSAT taken a year earlier without the same administrator.

Olivia makes you wanna cream your pants... Mom went with the money offer instead of the suck the dick offer (too classy for dick suck).
Also, is this only for women? So far I have only see daughters getting paid off for their entrance.
No, guys too. A dummy had his head placed over an athlete's body as part of his entrance application.
Ivy League schools don't want slightly above average. They want people who excel with high grades and SAT scores in the 94+ range.
No they don't. Ivy League schools don't even require that you take the SAT anymore. The SAT has been systematically devalued over the years because no matter how they tweaked it, they couldn't get the right numbers for POCs and women.
The Ivy League wants "diversity", athletes, and rich people who will make donations. It doesn't take geniuses to author scientific studies about 57 genders and fat shaming.
Yes, they do.
All applicants for first-year admission should report scores from either the SAT or the ACT.
SAT-Evidence-Based Reading and Writing: 720-770
ACT Composite: 33-35
Which standardized tests does Harvard require?
We require all applicants to complete the SAT or the ACT...The majority of students admitted represent a range of scores from roughly 600 to 800 on each section of the SAT
Standardized tests are required for admission
You may choose to take either the ACT or the SAT
