I'd like to correct an error in a post that was published on January 12. The error was discovered by an alert reader. The post was about standardized tests. I gave some data on average GMAT scores and mistakenly inverted data for the GMAT Verbal and the GMAT Quantitative. Here is the correct data:

For students who started their MA degree at SAIS Washington in 2009, the average scores were 41 for the GMAT Verbal and 46 for the GMAT Quantitative.

We will now correct the wording in that post.

My apologies for the error. If you see what you think may be an error in a post, please contact us at, and we will quickly review the information.
