In the above column, what point was Meredith trying to convey?

mStandardized testing is an

unpleasant rite of passage that all

pre-professionals must endure.

mMeredith has way too much time

like a Cosmo quiz gone wrong that

should be called the “What the

Hell was ThatSAT.”

mAlthough it is somewhat

amusing, Keller Instincts is a

pointless publication.
