The New York Times had an article out today about the general verbal and math score slightly lower than previous years. Here you go if you are interested:

The average score on the critical reading part of the SAT, which used to be known as the verbal test, was 502 out of a possible score of 800 — a decline of one point from last year, but also the lowest showing in reading in 13 years.

In math, the average score for the class of 2007 declined by three points, to 515. And the average score on the SAT writing test, which was introduced two years ago, was 494, a three-point drop.

502 in verbal and 515 in math…and people at Bronx Science complain about 700s in Math 2C? i complain about my score?

Black students on average scored 433 in critical reading and 429 in math; the averages for Puerto Rican students were 459 and 454; and those for white students were 527 and 534.

Oh yeah! The U.S. Open was fantastic. Put, Audrey, and i got to watch Maria Sharapova slaughter Roberta Vinci 6-0, 6-1 😦 and Andy Roddick struggle with seed 475 Justin Gimelstob 7-6 (8-6), 6-3, 6-3. Roddick stinks without his bazooka serve. i’d do it again!

Off to Maryland and some yummy crab cakes. Bon Voyage to everyone!
