I read it how you wrote it. Maybe you should read it again.

SAT scores don't make you a good student. They don't make you smart. They don't make you a hard worker, an early bloomer, or even a self starter. If someone can't cut it in college, they can't continue. It's survival of the best students, plain and simple.
