The Scarlett SAT


Earlier this month actress Scarlett Johansson revealed in an interview that her SAT score in 2002 was 1,080, a little above the national average for that year. Hey my kids took the SAT around that time and their scores were much higher than Scarlett’s. Hey, kids, where is that seven-figure movie contract?

I have a problem with the SAT, not Ms. Johansson. When I took the SAT, my nose bled all over the math portion—a defense mechanism. I had broken my nose a few times and suffered other sinus conditions that made profuse nose bleeds a regular feature of life. There was no HIV-rule back then, so a blood coated document was simply considered a gross misfortune. I retook the exam months later but don’t recall if I improved my scores. I understand that Ms. Johansson only did half of the math portion as well, but don’t know if her nose bled.

Regardless, I think it was a PR coup for a well-known actress to talk about her SAT score that was frankly average. Hey, average is okay if you do other things/anything well. And we should never be judged by our SAT scores, even GPAs. What counts is what we do with what we have unless, you choose to be bad. Specifically, I’m thinking of a senator from Texas. I wonder how he did on the SAT?

  1. You are very funny. Yes, it is Friday. Why not up the amount to $100 instead of $50? It goes into our savings from which we can withdraw. We will have to have money to put in our IRA because of the additional taxable income.I’m feeling pretty well. It’s been a good day.Sent from my Verizon Wireless 4G LTE smartphone
