getting you into law school. Since all of the justices got into top-ranking law schools I assume they all had excellent LSAT scores. But only the Black woman gets asked what hers was.

It's a safe bet that Judge Brown-Jackson's were higher than either of them. As for Cucker, he can go fuck himself.

But LSAT scores are useful only for getting into law school; the LSAT is basically like the SAT with an emphasis on reading comprehension. I'm sure the LSAT scores of all of the justices were excellent, and I don't really care what they were; the important thing is AFAIK nobody asked the others what they were.

at Johnson County (KS) community college in 2004, there was some sort of test we had to pass to get in. Some sort of logic and thinking thing. Now, I'm an EXCELLENT test taker, so I tend to love standardized tests.

The woman who ran the program didn't give a flying fuck what your score was, so long as it was the minimum required. She felt that the lowest passable score was as good as a perfect score. Her take on that made me totally forget my score, even though I think it was rather high. Helped me get over myself.

Colleges like Stanford put more emphasis on the GPS. University of Virg on the LSAT score.

My Son The Astronomer was also very good at standardized tests.

When he was a freshman in high school, he took biology, and then took the biology SAT test. When the scores arrived he had a 770. Wow! I told him he needed to call his teacher and thank her. Yes, he worked hard, but she had also taught him a lot.

Sophomore year he took chemistry. Took the chemistry SAT. Got a 780. I made him call his chemistry teacher and thank him.

Junior year he took physics. Are you seeing a pattern here? He took the physics SAT and got an 800. He said, "Oh, there was one question I wasn't sure of. I guess I got it right."

He is a master of understatement.

I honestly think that if he some day wins the Nobel Prize in physics, I'll read about it in the newspaper. I'll call him and say, "Why didn't you tell me???" And he'll say something like, "Oh, I got this call from Stockholm but I wasn't sure what it was about." Really, that would be him.

He would look at the honor roll and say good with A/B honor role but go in and take a test and kill it. His reading comprehension got him top 5% of the top 10% of the nation, just walking in taking a test. Amazing and fun.

My son is on the spectrum. Asperger's, which alas is no longer a diagnosis.

He struggled mightily with school, as smart as he was. We moved him from the local excellent public school to an even more excellent private school going into 7th grade. We were very fortunate that we could pay for private school (although as it happened my husband's parents paid for it, and I am eternally grateful for their generosity).

He was very smart, very attuned to academics.

He was slow learning to read. At the beginning of second grade he was still not reading, so was put into a "special reading" thing, taken out of the classroom for part of the day. By the end of the first semester he was reading at grade level.

Here's my main brag about him. He did Science Bowl every year in high school. His very small private school fielded at least four teams every year, and in the Kansas City area, where we lived, the local Science Bowl competition was by far the largest in the country. There were so many teams competing (a bit over 100) that 2 teams from Kansas City went to the National Science Bowl competition. Locally, the top 8 teams were acknowledged. My son's team (a bottom seed) placed 8th overall when he was a freshman. I learned later that my son was accused of being a ringer of some sort, because he was so incredibly good. Here he was, an extremely small for his age high school freshman, who at best looked like a 4th grader, but was taken to be someone older and better than he was.

I forget what his team did his sophomore year, but junior year they went to Nationals. As well as in his senior year. I am personally convinced they made it on the strength of my son's smart. I will say this, that every time there was a question that I could not understand at all, but I could tell the language was English, it was a physics question.

He is currently in a PhD program in astronomy at George Mason University, in Fairfax, VA, just outside of Washington DC. He is very happy, doing his research, as well as tours of the campus telescope.

Aren't our children wonderful?

I think mine is on the spectrum too. Since a baby I have read up on it as have some of his teachers but never had him tested just used tools for him to get thru. Being in law school has been a struggle. Though the grades are not there, the professor holds him up as outstanding in arguments. He recently got tested and they said ADHD and gave him a drug. He says it makes all the difference. Though I think it is something else but if it works for him, so be it. It allows him to focus. Maybe that is why they can do a test, but not so much a class with a grade.

@harrisonjaime
Judge Brown Jackson graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard, Cum Laude from Harvard Law, & was the editor of the Harvard Law review. She is the real deal. I’ve never heard “Tie Too Tight” ask about lsat scores for other nominees, but typical of those who feel a bit “inadequate.”

accusation in the background. Exactly what they did with HRC. Might be all a non-curious, non-researcher type hears.

Kind of goes back to Rovian tactics - the idea that more people hear what's spoken first than hear the subsequent truth - but has gotten so much worse with the tremendous amount of info out there today. Unless you aren't working not enough time in one day to research the truth. Compounding that is that there is no single source of truth for anyone to agree on.
