Getting a 1400 or higher combined score on the SAT puts you in the top 1 to
2% of people who take that test. For a company to say that they only hire
the top 2% "smartest" people, based on some test they took in high school,
is complete rubbish. I would never want to work for a place with such silly
screening practices.

And, yes, MENSA *only* requires a 1200 for membership.
