    Something you SHOULD know. I saw this a couple days ago, read it to the 7th and 8th graders. Talking to Mr. P reminded me of it:

    Just adds more creedence to the saying...

    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.

    I'm caught in this dilemma..my daughter just took the test in March and I really don't know where she stands.

    I've wondered what the real point of the essay was..I mean, how can you grade something
    fairly that can be read by who knows how many different people? Overall I think she did well, but I really don't know.
    What do the colleges use to judge this new test? How are they going to factor in the essay,
    or are they?
