SAT Scores

On the Stack Overflow podcast, Joel Spolsky has noted a couple of times that he's never met a programmer who didn't get an 800 on the math portion of the SAT.

I used to be pretty proud of my 790 SAT math score. But now it's proof that I'm not as smart as any of the programmers Joel has ever met.


Comments:
Anybody who compares SAT scores more than 5 years out of college is just doing it as some kind of "manhood"-measuring contest.

I wouldn't give a second thought (1360 combined).
 
They recentered the scores in the mid 90's, so your 790 is just as good as my 800.

;)
