<p>Today I got my SAT scores back - I got a 1950 on my SAT. My parents saw the score today in the morning and they were . And now it's already in the afternoon and they haven't even stopped obsessing about it yet. </p>
<p>Now they're telling me how stupid and useless I am and how I'll never go to a good college because I did so badly on the SAT. And they keep comparing me to my other friend who got a 2290 on the SAT, saying that he's in the same grade as me and that I should at least be able to do as well as him if not better. And because I got like 340 points less than he did, they're considering me dumb. </p>
<p>They're telling me how I'm a and how I'll never do well in life. My dad is now forcing me to read my SAT book every day in order to help me practice for my next SAT which will probably be in a few months. My parents said that I'm going to keep taking the SAT over and over again until I get a 2300+, which is insane because I can probably never do that considering the score I have now. Also I have other, more important things to do than study for a 3-hour test like keep up with my classes and school activities. </p>
<p>The bad thing is that today is the last day of school and winter break starts tomorrow. It's a pretty long break so I was hoping that I could stay home and enjoy myself a little, but I guess that's not happening, especially not with my parents watching everything I do since I got such a "bad" score. </p>
<p>Well what should I do?
And is my score (1950) really that bad?
Is it true that I won't be able to get into a good college with that SAT score?
And out of curiosity, how much do colleges even care about your SAT anyway?</p>
