GREs and Google
When I took the GREs it reminded me of something I was told when I worked
at Google: Larry and Sergey used to hire based on a formula using the SATs and
GPAs. They considered the SAT an applicant's potential, and their GPA as their
ability to deliver on that potential. They plotted this out according to a
formula and used it in their hiring decision. They stopped this a while ago
though as it turned out that there is very little correlation between these
metrics and actual job performance.
