USC was extremely shitty with the financial aid and Georgetown just gave out loans with low interests. Bank $truggle$. But another factor was due to Full IB, I basically start as a sophomore. My main goal is grad school.
But here's a thought I've been thinking of ever since I watched the pilot of Suits and wanting a better a standardized test score. This may be dumb and just pure fantasy, but hear me out; I want some feedback on this plan:
Person A gets 36/2400 on respective standardized test with ease.
Person B only gets ok scores like 1900/29.
A and B sign up for the same test on the same day at the same local high school. A and B check in with their respective IDs and head out to their room but instead of going to their correct room, they switch. So A is taking B's test and B is taking A's test. B pays off A with a substantial amount of money and it is a win-win situation.
Keep this in mind:
This is the scenario in Oregon. We only need to check in once and then we are free to go to our test rooms.
I know SAT has that cursive thing but one can easily fake it with some practice.
A doesn't go for the perfect score but a damn good score like say 2200-2300/34-35
lol it's much easier than that. if you really wanna cheat the system, have your friend who's a genius get a fake id with your name on it that is also state issued. proctors can't tell the difference between a real and a fake id unless it's absolutely obvious so once you get past the id issuing you're good to go and you'll pay your friend the price of the fake id (150) + say another 100-150 to take your test for you. i've seen a bunch of asians do this with their own ids because proctors can't tell asians apart in photos, no joke.
if you get caught, you'll never get into a college which is the downside. also, you mentioned suits and its 100000x harder to cheat on an lsat, gmat, or mcat than it is to cheat on an SAT. that's why SAT/ACT are absolutely jokes since anyone can get away with cheating.
