Others simply adore it, because it either gives them self-worth, gets them into college, gets them well-deserved scholarship money, or actually challenges the mind, unlike high school work. You actually have to be smart or study to do well on it.
There is, of course, a third category, that may or may not be a minority, because, frankly, they don't care about it. They do it or don't do it and don't stress about it. They realize that though it does have a significant impact on your future if you're going to a college, they realize that they can handle it. I'm one of them.
HOLY SHAT I GOT A 700 ON MY SAT! WUT A STUPDI TEST!
-No. It's not a stupid test. You're just stupid (unless you have a learning disability).
Rock is to scissors as paper is to ...
-No. You're an idiot. It's rock, you moron. Any idiot can get those right. They're logical.
OMG! I GOT A 1590 on that STUPID SAT. I HATE IT!
-Calm down. Breathe in, breathe out. You're ok. You can still get into a school that's distinguishing factor is its name.
My child got a 1170 on your stupid SAT. I want a recount!
-Face it. Your kid got that score. He/She is not an 1337 genius. Get over it.
OMG! You only got a 1490 on the SAT? You're dumb!
-No. Maybe I just don't care. Or maybe you have a supremacy disorder because you're "gifted."
I loved the SATs. It actually tests intelligence rather than how hard you can work or how fast you can copy someone else's homework.
-Not a bad person. Unless you hate the SATs.
I'm glad I took the SATs so I could get a full ride to college!
I don't really care. I've got better things to do than study for a test of intelligence or college aptitude.
-That's cool. If you do as well as you hoped.
I don't care. I know I'll do well enough for college. I played 2 hours of Halo 2 before taking it and I never studied for it. I got a 1300.
-Yep. That's me.
