Did you mean a 1690 SAT score? I did some research and found that currently the highest is 800 in each section for a top score of 2400, but I know the high score was lower than that back in the day because anything in the 1200 range in 1985 was exceptional. I did well enough to get some scholarships with a 920 -- my Upward Bound Counselor tried to make me take it over and although I studied, I just didn't have the energy the day of the retake so I blew it off.

no Rich - 690 (combined)

Miss Mika said...

Thank you so much for playing Mr. Stephens, I appreciate it :)

I was wondering the same thing @ a 690 SAT score combined. I thought that was a typo. That is proof that test don't always prove anything.

7 times? With an ice pick? WTH??

So you have a green thumb, huh? I feel the same way about having life in a house. Plants and flowers accentuate the house for me, so I feel ya.

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

yea, no physics, chemistry, bio or history on sat, no Satre or hegel, math with pictures no problem - thank good for vocab or wouldnt have got that

any time sista

Jaded said...

I had a 1250 combined (back when the highest was 1600) and I'm a singer. You got a 690 and you're a scientist. Looks like the tests don't really measure aptitude, huh?

I'm with you on the flowers. I love having fresh flowers throughout the house!

Aunt Jackie said...

i'm gonna get you for tagging me...but i'll get to that tag.

my grand mother used to keep ice picks all over the house in case my Grandfather got too fiesty..

I think he got shanked a couple of times.

Being a store owner is a good look for you!

Don said...

braincell in the building.

every time i read about the ice pick deal i cringe.

Don said...

i doubt if they NOW have a letter high enough to grade you, all-mi-t.

Regina said...

Nice facts! I think the only thing that really surprised me is the fresh cut flowers deal! I don't think I ever picked you for a fresh cut flower kind of brotha! But it is nice!

The True Urban Queen said...

I can see you in the garden planting tulips and daisies. Aww how cute.

Anonymous said...

Ok I have three questions from the facts you shared.

1. Since you read and write music I suspect you play instruments so Im curious as to what kind...

2. Stabbed 7 times....good Lawd..um what did you do...and I hope you dont deal with these stabbers anymore.

3. I love flowers (even though I'm not at all skilled with growing them) ...what type do you plant and leave around your house??

K..think thats all thanks for sharing....

Miss Mocha said...

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

lol ive been informed that i can be better than good lol

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

miss mocha = welcome back, i was worried, though the taliban got u, how u been sista

Curious said...

690? Now that's just deliberate disinterest on your part. Wasn't it 400 points that you got automatically for just showing up?

My parents would have been still serving time for the beating they would have given me for coming home with a score like that.

Although I've always believed the SAT's were biased in a subtle way against people who didn't follow the company line.

Marcus LANGFORD said...

Brotha T, that's a sweet picture bro! I truly do not think I will be doing anymore tags, 'cause they are annoying as heck; I think the last time around was my last one.

Anyway, I found that we share in an interest in collecting things. I took collect comic books and Incredible Hulk memorabilia including t-shirts and action figures. I dig nice landscaping as well; it's one of the things I really get into as an architectural professional whom has to be the concerned about landscaping as well.

JayBee said...

much success on the business venture. i'll encourage people i know with dogs in the a to roll through.

Marleaux said...

Hmm, doesn't your tag sound super familiar; like I've read that before... But I don't blame you, I got tagged twice this week. Tagging fever is upon us.

And who don't you know in ATL. I'm sure your store will be a success.

Tera said...

Damn, Damn, DAMN is right!!! But hey at least it gave me a post for today!

caratime2 said...

I'm loving your comment about the cut flowers in as many rooms as possible. *smile* I've been trying to fight the weeds in my garden, so the herbs will find their way through. It's great to see the fresh majoram and oregano, lemon balm, chives and wild garlic coming back up. I'm having mixed feelings about the mint, though, cause it's trying to do a vini, vidi, vici on all the beds around it.

Seriously, though, I couldn't even remember what my SAT/ACT scores were, so I went back to look. In 10th grade in 1973 I got 1030 (580/verbal + 450/math). The copy is so bad I can't even see what I scored in 1974, though. hmmm. I do know I scored a perfect 800 in German on my ACT, but only got 610 and 680 on English and Literature respectively.

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

Curious - lol, it was boring, like i said they aint ask about none of the stuff i wwas interested in, and the problems seemed to insult my intellect

24 carat time - u smarter than me. Hast du eine momment ziet?

Tera - any time sugar. lol

Marleaux - ok I confess its from last year, but tagging waste valuable post space (well not like john McCain is a value) lol, its a lot of folks i dont know. and thanks hon

Jaybee - good look nice to have the support of brothers and sisters

Marcus - i did my last one yesterday. and did u know i wanted to grow up to be Dr. Victor VonDoom lol

DN Lee said...

al black golf team in Memphis. Did you go to Central High?

kayellejaye said...

About #6...you might need to teach me a thing or two. My apartment is where plants go to die.

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

kayellejaye - i can do that im down, my verbena is looking real good in the yard

dn lee - central was black and white, i went to Hamilton

Anonymous said...

Hmm, My question to you doc would be why do u feel that your brushes with "near death" experiences suffice as pertinent information?

Furthermore, 690 on your SAT? I acheived a 1300, and failed the AP pyshcholgy course that I decided to take senior year in high school but scored the highest mark in the school on the nationally adminstered AP psych exam which left my prof no choice but to give me an "A" ( I didnt attend his course, I had senior-itis)

Gardening is very soothing tho. I have somewhat of a green thumb my being from Greesboro/Mcleansville North Carolina.
