What Your Score Means
If you scored high here, the life of the mind is exciting to you. You likely read widely about a variety of topics; you enjoy learning for the sake of learning, not because you may get a good grade. You enjoy talking about ideas, philosophies and trading new perspectives. High scorers will look for academic challenges and colleges that will stimulate their minds. High scorers should be aware that big name colleges are not the only ones that provide intellectual stimulation. In fact, many colleges are more scholarly than Ivy League colleges. High scorers may even look for those non-traditional colleges that do not stress grades.
Lower scorers are less comfortable with intellectual ideas and concepts. You may not have yet been exposed to compelling topics, issues or ideas. You may not have had experiences that have excited you about learning. You want to be cautious about applying to a college that will expect you to have a serious academic focus immediately. You may want to use college as a place to try classes or subjects with which you are unfamiliar; you may be pleasantly surprised by how interesting a new subject might be.
