19. Maine: dumbest state claim based on lowest average SAT score (1389)

I was like...how in the hell is 1389 the LOWEST average score in the country when 1600 is PERFECT?

Then I looked it up...apparently they added an extra 800 point section, making 2400 a perfect score these days. When the hell did that change??

i think it changed in 2005. because i think my graduating class year was the last to have the 1600 as the perfect score.

although even with that in mind it is pretty sad that even with 800 fewer possible points, i still scored better than most of the kids in Maine. 1412 on mine.
