OK, I may have had too much to drink (an overly full glass of wine–I’m a cheap date, what can I say?) but I was just registering my high school daughter to take the SAT when I came across this in the College Board website regarding submitting a photograph to be used as identification at the SAT test center:

“Choosing an Acceptable Photo

  1. Your appearance in the photo MUST match how you will look on the day of the test or you will not be admitted to the test center. For example, if you upload a photo of someone else or a photo of an animal, you will NOT be admitted.

A photo of an animal?  An animal?  Really, College Board??? Really???

Yay! I’m going to take the SATs!  And then I’m going to hide some nuts for winter!                             (Photograph courtesy of National Geographic)

It really makes you wonder about the people who are going to American colleges these days . . . and the people who administer the tests.
