Simply put, I love to read, and I believe that a lifelong desire to read and write is good not just for SAT verbal sections. Developing and honing reading and writing habits will also help advance your career, and will increase the respect others have for you. In terms of qualifications, I have scored 800 on the SAT Verbal, and the SAT II exams in Literature and Writing. I also scored a 5 on the AP English Literature exam. I still love to read and go through dozens of news articles a day, and occasionally reread a classic or two.
