How much would you pay for a 2400?

<p>How much would you pay for a 2400?
Straight As?
An officer position in a club?
A published novel?
A national award?</p>

<p>If you're a parent, what percent of your yearly salary would you give up if it meant your child would have these things?</p>

<p>Just curious.</p>

<p>nothing. Let them earn it themselves.</p>

<p>If it means paying towards a tutoring program or something, that's a different matter. But just for them to automatically have straight A's, a perfect test score, of national awards - these things should be earned.</p>

<p>if i were a parent, maybe i would give up up to $10,000</p>

<p>I might pay for a 2400, but paying for the rest kind of takes the honor away</p>

<p>Whatever the difference is between me attending a state school and a UC.</p>

<p>as a student the only thing of those i would pay money for is the 2400. Around 5000$. currently have 2090.</p>

<p>anyways, the other awards are not worth paying for. Those are things that should be earned not bought. If you cant gain the experience, then the results are not significant.</p>

<p>quite honestly, I wouldn't pay for any of those. However I'd pay such a great number of money if I could relive my high school days just because I know not to let silly things get to me. That itself could raise my GPA to a near 4.0 probably</p>

<p>25 american dollars</p>

<p>For the 2400, I would pay however much it costs to take the SAT. My 2080 got me into the school of my dreams, so I don't need any stinking 2400 to prove my worth. As for the rest, as everyone said, those are things that you work hard to achieve, and I wouldn't pay a dime for one of those</p>

<p>I got a 2330 on my own, so I wouldn't pay too much for a 2400.</p>

<p>I think people on here are trying to come across as so moralistic... When it comes down to it, if you had to pay some $ to get accepted to the school of your dreams, I bet a lot of people would do it.</p>

<p>well, first I would need to actually have the money to pay for them...;)</p>

<p>Question, though. Why do so many people feel that paying for an SAT score is fine but paying for anything else would "take the honour away"? SAT scores are earned through intellect/studying and effort just like everything else. Sure, there are some biases, but all of the categories named have bias within them in one way or another.</p>

<p>I'd probably pay for the novel (due to royalties:D)</p>

<p>By the way, you're also allowed to use non-monetary answers.</p>

<p>Like maybe you'd give up a finger for a published novel, or something. Or two hours of your time every night for the 2400.</p>

<p>10 dollars - 1 dollar for each point I was short on the SAT.</p>

<p>I dunno, if I was really really really really really really close to say UPenn Wharton, I'd pay. But honestly, I really wouldn't pay too much money, if at all because at the college I'd be like wow... I basically bought my way in... in my mind that just doesn't seem... right</p>

<p>I know I'm coming off as moralistic, but that's just kind of how it is. I'd give up sleep, my social life for a grade but that's cause I'd earn it.</p>

<p>If I were interested in certain careers, and money wasn't a problem, I'd pay a lot. It could actually be worth millions if say it would push you into Wharton and you bacame an investment banker.</p>

<p>It could be worth a college education because if you have a 2400 with a solid GPA and class rank, lots of lower tier colleges will start throwing aid your way (even the full ride variety). 2400 may not be as impressive to HYP and other top tier colleges that offer no merit aid, but to most colleges in the country, a 2400 opens the door and allows you to save some cash.</p>

<p>I can get it myself with borrowed prep books from the public library. All you need is dedication and luck.</p>

<p>Looking at some of the sums that people put down, I see how many people do not realize that many child centered parents have already spent that much or more indirectly for that 2400 score.</p>

<p>If I had several grand, I would get a car.</p>

<p>I'm 3/5 w/o any money spent... not too bad.</p>

<p>2400: I'll name my first born after the person who gives me this (Surname included).
Straight As: $100 for every A's
An officer position in a club: Nothing, too easy to win election with fancy speech.
A published novel: Nothing.
A national award: Kidney.</p>
