I Knew I Was Smarter than the People Scoring My Tests

I was told recently that college admissions policies are moving away from standardized testing, a move I understand and approve of, but would not have served me well personally as I was always a good test-taker. (For all the good, ultimately, that it did me.)

I had assumed it was because tests paint an incomplete picture of a student's potential, but maybe it's just because they are so darn hard to score...
