Twin Brothers Score Perfect 1600 On SATs
Twin 16-Year-Old Brothers Both Score Perfect 1600 On SATs
LONG BEACH, N.Y. -- Dillon and Jesse Smith are fraternal twins, but their penchant for perfection is identical. The 16-year-old brothers beat the odds to each score a perfect 1600 on the SATs. Of 1.4 million high-schoolers who took the Scholastic Aptitude Test in 2004, just 939 scored a perfect 1600.
The seniors at Long Beach High School aced the English and math tests after taking the SATs for the second time. Earlier this year, Dillon scored 1520 and Jesse 1530.
Jesse ranks third in their senior class; Dillon ranks 16th.
"Sixteen is running my life. I'm 16 years old, I'm 16th in my class, and I got a 1600 on my SAT," Dillon said Wednesday.
Dillon said he didn't even study too hard for the tests.
"I didn't spend, like, weeks and months and years of my life studying for this test," he said. "I took it easy. ... "I happen to be good at taking tests."
Dillon plans to major in engineering and apply to Columbia, New York University and Cooper Union. Jesse plans to apply to Brown, Boston University, Wesleyan and Bates.
ivy league here I come!!! :rolleyes: Surprising though, how many people do so well on the SAT's and still end up tossing burgers ...
Not to many I'm sure. If so...then there dumber then they really are. :)
They always say, the SAT's measure how smart you are, not how hard you study or work.
how many brilliant minds are going to waste flipping burgers we'll never know.. ;)
