All in all, I thought this SAT was pretty easy. Stupid mistakes nonwithstanding, I think I have around a 1500. But do anyone remember what you put for the question on the avid reader passage about why he left graduate school? Was it because he feels the reading in school are inadequate or because he prefers to read fictions instead of academic works? I thought this was perhaps the hardest verbal question and yet no ones has talked about it much.

I don't remember the wording, but I think it was like feeling that it was inadequate or something similar.

The antagonist in the avid reader passage was female not male.

the answer to another question was that she would not make a good academic . this shows that she didnt agree to the style of reading, she disagreed with the "reading for facts" thing, she read for the beauty of the words alone.
hope this helps,

I put something about disliking that style of reading. But I also put vindication :). I still think im right on both of these.
