I'm a moron when it comes to Verbal things. Seriously, I do terrible in English class lit stuff. But I still got a 750. I got 6 questions wrong on the May Sat, very tough curve.

I've always been a Math person. I can do tons of things in my head, but I only got a 720 Math when I really should be getting 770 or higher. I got 5 math quesitons wrong in may. I hate how theres no margin for error in math. I was sure about every question, too. bah.

Is there anyone like me?

Mmm...kinda. I want to do *physics*, which is *way* more math-y than verbal, and guess what? My first practice test...800 verbal, 700 math. My next practice test? 800 verbal, 740 math. Etc. Etc. Etc. I still remember how mad that all made me...haha.
I finally did bring that math up--it's just that the math is *so elementary* that it screwed me up...I'd always make the absolute *stupidest* mistakes, like solving for the wrong thing...but because there's no way to make corresponding mistakes verbally, I always did way better on that. (For me it all stems from utter laziness...haha)
