NO, I questioned the consistency of having taught SAT and yet not knowing his own score. You talked about if he's not from Columbia and Dartmouth he won't have any credibility with me. Never mind if that's as far from the truth as it gets to begin with, for anyone who knows me.

You tell me who's being personal, genius.

You brought up his credibility before I did (no, you didn't just say "consistency", you said "credibility"). And his integrity, for that matter.

Yes, that would indeed be what I would question if he tells me that 1. he teaches SAT and 2. he doesn't know his own score.

Wouldn't you?

No, I wouldn't be personal like that - in particular about something so trivial.

Just my experience. Great applicants have been rejected because of smaller things.

I'm having a lot of trouble following this argument.

This guy took his SATs 8 years ago.

It's like a 24 year old person teaching junior high school (let's say 9th grade) Algebra. I don't think I would question the consistency (or credibility or whatever) of that individual if that individual didn't remeber what she got for a grade in 9th grade algebra 8 years earlier. Maybe I'd expect her to be able to tell me "I got an A" or "I got a B" but not necessarily "I got a 92".

I don't see what teaching an SAT class and remembering what score you got on the test 8 years ago have to do with one another.

What if he is teaching an SAT class, doesn't remember the score, AND DIDN'T go to Harvard or Penn?
