“…his biggest crime was simply the result of a deaf lackey who misheard his order of “A bit of light panic, I think, eh?” as “The ship Titanic, sink her.””
“The Matron lost her right hand after a vicious bite from a patient. But even this proved to be blessing, gone was her athritis riddled hand and in its place a state-of-the-art prosthetic that could operate the electro-shock machines in a ceaseless parade of agony and torture. Her sadistic methods were only uncovered when the Swiss electricity board decided to investigate just why a small village in the mountains was consuming more power than Zurich.”
Evil Genius is a great game.
Half of the AP Computer Science final was on Friday, and I don’t think I did that badly. I might’ve fallen asleep a number of times, both dropping my pencil and missing a question, but I caught it when I checked over my answers. Luckily.
In even more test-related business, I got the results of my practice SAT. Not PSAT; this is from prep school. I scored a 660 in Verbal (if only I could get a six added onto that…), 710 in Math, and 550 in Writing dropped down to a 500 because of my 2 point essay that was out of 6 points. Yay for writing inconsistency. Last term, I got almost everything from 2 to 6, so we’ll see how wild my essay scores can get.
But it’s a good score, and I’m not in bad standing for the colleges I’m considering. Most of the top schools are out of my league, and I’m fine with that. I was told to keep in mind Wesleyan, Colgate, and Tufts as schools to consider (not safety nor reach). So if you know anybody who went there, I’d love feedback. On the safety side, there’s all the state colleges, which is fine too. I’d probably have a better chance of getting laid (though that’d probably be the extent of it). Polytech also seems like an interesting safety; my dad went there, and I’m looking towards an computer or engineering major anyway. If I happen to get into a liberal arts college like Wesleyan, I might look to see what psychology classes there are, though I already know I have an affinity for computers. This site is proof.
The reach schools are where it gets tricky. I’m smart, but not that smart. Few, if any, of the Ivies would considering scores lower than 700 in each, especially with my limited resume. I’ve just enough to cover a paper, but I’d need more if I wanted that much of a boost. I liked the campuses of Johns Hopkins and Swarthmore when I went there on the last College Trip (which I’ll be doing again February 4-6), so those will be among the reach schools I choose. I also have a partial legacy at Columbia because my mother went to Columbia Nursing. Partial because I’m not looking to get into Nursing. It’s like a ghetto legacy. My family’s rockin with the ghetto Columbia azn pride.
It’s doubtful there would be any rush, but that event is coming up in four days. It doesn’t have as much significance this year, but it does mean we get to eat cool food. As well as cram for my American Studies final.
