I cannot imagine going through that much trivial
research for an interview. Why on earth would they
want your SAT scores? My comment in another reply was
in jest! What's next? IQ? Shoe size? How many varsity
letters you have? Your best boatrace time from your
college party days?

If any employer wants information from you above and
beyond your legitimate experience (unless you are
entry-level, in which case GPA is usually expected),
it's time to start questioning what else they might
ask for after you are hired or question their reasons
for asking for such trivial information.

I'm not trying to start a conspiracy theory, but the
more hoops they make you jump through in an interview,
the more you should expect to jump through after you
are hired.
