Just wanted to get some opinions or thoughts about why service academies care so much about test scores? Almost every study on test scores finds that they are insignificant and have almost no potential in grading the intelligence of someone. As progressive as the academies are in education, I would think that they might not invest so much in them. A test can measure what the government would consider being a good officer; however, this doesn't mean that the individual will be a good or successful officer? Just wanted to learn a little more about what the academies may see in test scores?
