I’ve blogged a lot about how Ivy League students regress precipitously to the mean when they go from the SAT to official IQ tests like the WAIS. The obvious explanation for this is that the correlation between these tests is far from perfect, but now I’m wondering if some of them even scored high on the SAT in the first place.

Several years ago 60 minutes did a story about one boy fraudulently writing the SAT for at least 16 other students, and the security was so poor that some of the students he impersonated were girls.

I wonder what percentage of Ivy League students got into their schools by having someone else write the SAT for them.
