A 1400 combined SAT and a 3.6 GPA? You'll enjoy working with poli-sci majors

If you are looking to hire recent college graduates, asking about SATs and GPAs
seems like the only thing you can do. SATs are excellent predictors of
freshman performance, which is all they were designed to do (!). However, for
any other class of worker, experience and developed skill ought to be of
primary -- or sole -- importance.

-- Steve Jong (who 20 years ago got the requisite 1400+,
but who took a dual-major science degree at the cost of
an "inadequate" GPA 8^)
