My son did WAY better than that, thank goodness. But I've read some things that some kids have done in 7th/8th grade and they are awesome scores.
Thanks for the information!! He was happy with his scores (it was higher than the 'average senior' SAT score for our high school, state and nationally) and now he has a plan in place to achieve the scores he feels he needs, now he knows exactly what he needs to improve upon! He is starting with an SAT prep person this summer to REALLY help him!

My DS was for a similar program through Johns Hopkins! It's nice to take it with NO pressure at all!!
