    I like Pat, but come on! Does he really think SAT and LSAT scores tell what kind of person someone is??? Didn't Princeton recently abandon the SAT? Or another high-profile school? Those tests predict how well one takes standardized tests, not much else.

    I certainly hope I'm not the best dog trainer. That would be pathetic....
