Ah... why don't we start slamming Mensa members
I'm not at all fond of the talent search concept. "My wife's friend said her son participated in Duke TIP and made a 17, and when he heard my daughter had made a 30 (as an eighth-grader) he was so upset he cried because his score was so low." I feel sorry for all concerned. They are kids. Why are adults pushing them into this? They will grow up and have to deal with it soon enough, why ruin their last few years of childhood with unnecessary stress? Unless you need the test scores because you want to attend a program that requires it, what is the purpose of pushing a 13 year old through college admission tests?
