Dude, We Made The News!

<p>Well, not us specifically, but we contributed to what happened. I imagine a sizable percentage of the hits to the College Board's website came from the informed people who frequent this forum.</p>

Deluge of traffic crashes SAT Web site
Students unable to check test results online</p>

<p>It's like we're superstars!!!</p>

<p>My favorite part was:</p>

<p>"Cate, for instance, was delighted to discover that his score had improved by 130 points — to 1500 out of a possible 1600.... He and his parents had a pancake breakfast to celebrate."</p>

<p>That is kind of depressing... her life is so unstimulating that a good test score is reason for a celebration.</p>

<p>Americans really need to kick this whole score obsession thing.</p>

<p>haha. true that.</p>

<p>I am amused. :)</p>

<p>All the CC kids wanted to check their stats that's what did it :)</p>

<p>that kid goes to my school, and, trust me, 1500 IS really good for him.</p>

<p>hey y 'yall gotta hate on a brotha who gets a fiteen hundred?</p>

<p>i wish someone from my school was on CC. does anyone attend Leland High School in San Jose, CA?</p>

<p>Hey, that's pretty near my school. I think about 10-15 miles. :)</p>



<p>Be careful what you wish for - one of the good things here is that if you prefer, you can be anonymous. (Just don't post revealing things like the fact that you were Jefferson Bookminster HS Student of the Year in 2003... ;))</p>

<p>Still, if you want to get some other kids from your school involved, let them them know about the site. High school guidance offices are adding us to their "resource list" on their websites and handouts, too, so you could suggest that if we aren't already on there.</p>
