On today's show, Madeleine spoke to Philip Ballinger, Director of Admissions at the University of Washington, about whether or not the SAT test is an effective predictor of future performance. Afterwards, she and Alex reached back to their own test-prepping days (way back in one case) to toss a few SAT-style analogies back forth. For example:

Madeleine: Mortgage-backed securities are to banking as the Chicago Cubs are to...?

Alex: Baseball?

We'll share your best suggestions on air.
