Madison, Whether you are getting a blood test or are taking the SAT's, tests only measure a narrow band, some small aspect of our physical, mental, emotional, or intellectual condition at the time we take the test. They provide a doctor, or an admissions board with a small window into a tiny room in a great mansion. They do not see all. They do not measure worth, character, or ""real world"" ability. Tests are tools that you can learn to use. Prove the depth of your character.
