I never should have asked about your GPA? You were too afraid to answer.<quoted text>
I believe you were the one who brought it up, George.
You never should have asked about my GPA.
Frankly, I do not even remember what my SAT scores were anymore. PSAT was good enough to qualify for National Merit Scholarship. And whatever I scored on a mathematics test that the State of Michigan gives was good enough to garner a letter from MIT asking me to apply. Good for a giggle since that was not at all my area of interest.
But all of that was long ago, George. Not the sort of stuff I hope makes it into my obit at the end of my life. Far more satisfying accomplishments along the way.
I couldn't give you my exact SAT scores either. My point was what the institutions regard as acceptable.
No offense, but we all got letters from different schools inviting us to apply. My most memorable ones were from Georgetown and Pomona (I really was hooked on the idea of going there, but distance in the early '80s was a real impediment compared to today.)
