Bill Clinton SAT score less than George W. Bush – George W. Bush is always brought up as ‘dumb’ or ‘stupid’, ‘naive’ and many believe this was part of the agenda for pushing him to go into the presidency. Clinton, despite his scandal, has a very different general reputation. However what if we told you that, at least in SAT scores, George was smarter?
Bill Clinton SAT score less than George W. Bush
Before we get into things I know that a) SAT scores don’t fully explain smarts, especially in later life, and b) we can’t actually verify the scores.
In both the case of Bill and George their success was much more likely due to family connections and influence and who they knew rather than their pre-college SAT scores. Anyway, what are the reported scores?
- George W. Bush SAT score 1206
- Bill Clinton SAT score 1032
That’s a fairly big difference but the both went onto prestigious schools. Both attended Yale and Bush graduated from Harvard too however Bush’s entry to the schools has often been questioned and his family influence is often seen to have been quite the piggy bank. But I have not seen Clinton’s entry questioned before!
I’m no Bush fan, I don’t like what he did with the war and how he responded to certain events but calling him ‘stupid’ or ‘dumb’ likely isn’t accurate. He was the President of a country and getting there, even with family in the right place, takes some smarts and people skills to be reckoned with.
What do you think? Are you surprised by the SAT scores?
