How is it humanly possible to do so well on the SAT II lit? My Verbal and Writing scores are as high as yours, but I was barely able to touch the 50th percentile in the last SAT II literature test I took. Am I just an aberration, or are there others like me?

Duke loves SAT score - youre in... Youre overqualified for vanderbilt- ur in or either they reject you for being too good... Princeton- hmmmm GPA can hurt..rank too... They need to hold on to their #1 spot on US News rank- and Having a high proportion of students in the top 10 % of HS Class is worth 35% in the selectivity rank- and they have Harvard at #1..so they cant fall..but ur 1590 is amazing
