From your other posts, it sounds like you are in to politics. If you apply to schools like Yale etc, I think math can help you. But for schools like MIT, I don't think it will sound very impressive.

How can you say that a 720 SAT1 is a bad score? That's amazing, I could NEVER get that high, and neither could most of the people in the country. Anyway, being you've competed, that does sound impressive.

Well, if this guy is top 100 in state math competition, a 720 on the SAT 1 is definitely a disappointment.
On the other hand, it can be a good thing. You have proven that you are really good at math, and now you can make an impression that you just aren't that good at taking SATs. So if your verbal score sucks, well, it's not because you are not good, but because you suck at taking SAT tests.

rofl im good at taking the sat's just not at taking it under pressure lol. i get over 1450+ on the 10 real sats just when it really counts i second guess and i crumble. lol. sucks to be me. but there are 50,000 top 100 kids in the us so its not that special.

... 50,000 top 100 kids, huh?? that cant be right!
|By Sw4y (Sw4y) on Monday, November 03, 2003 - 01:10 pm: Edit|
well since there are 50 states and 100 kids that are top 100 i wouldnt stand out that much right?

[cough] 50 x 100 = 5000.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled mathematical debate.

that would explain my 720 on sat 1 math

Your top 100 is a BS figure if you couldn't multiply 50 * 100 instantly in your head. (5*1, + 3 zeros...)
Do you have a score from a national contest that people actually know about (eg. USAMTS, AMC 12, AIME)?

There is a xAML for every state probably. I take most CAMLs (6 per year)... I actually have consistently screwed up, so I only have very few perfect tests (6 problems per test).

mass association of math league...its 30 questions and 1 hur and 30 mins to do it i think?
|By Webhappy2 (Webhappy2) on Wednesday, November 05, 2003 - 06:15 pm: Edit|
Whoa! It's a different form!
Calif is 6 questions in 30 minutes. 6 of them a year.
