"I started to think of how radically different my mental state was from that of
the high school students in the same room, taking the same test. An earlier
show of hands indicated that most of the students were taking the SAT for the
first time. So, I think it's very likely there were some people in the room
who were terrified. For better or for worse they were confronting destiny.
Meanwhile, I was confronting silliness. The difference in perspective seemed
so extreme that there were moments when I shook with desperately suppressed
laughter. "


Beautiful.

It is very beautiful. It is ironic that I randomly came across this site two days ago. I already got an email from the guy :)

Too bad, my mom didn't let me waste my own money to take the ACT :(

Oh well, I will just get a 1 on the ACT in college.
... or when I turn 33

This actually reminds me of a plan that some friends and I hatched when we were studying for the physics GRE. Somehow we became interested in what a "baseline" score would look like -- how well would someone with no physics or math background do?. We were all going to pitch in and send my roommate off to take it, since he has a completely liberal arts background, unfortunately we never got around to it. I'm still curious, so maybe next testing season we'll give it a go. :)
