As the founder and CEO of an educational consulting firm, when Lindsay tells people about what she does, she usually gets one of the following responses:
a) Did you know I got a perfect 800 on my SAT/36 on my ACT? (Fill in the blank with some crazy impressive test score.)
b) College tests are the worst. I’m so glad I don’t have to ever look at the SAT or ACT again.
c) The SAT and ACT are pointless! I did terribly and look how successful I am now.
It’s no secret that the SAT and ACT tend to evoke strong emotional responses. What Lindsay has come to discover, though, is that these tests have more to teach us than we might realize, not just about math and reading but also problem-solving in business and in life.
