Curious, those in energy trading: what’s your ACT/SAT score?

Really do not mean to be cringe but feel like banking applications ask about this while phys trading roles really don't. just curious. i'll go first - I had a 31 on the ACT and went to a public Ivy in the South

Nobody gives a shit unless you got like a 15 on the math section.  Honestly for trading interviews, the people who put close-to-perfect or perfect SAT/ACTs tend to be pretty shitty interviewers because they are just robots who only care about scores and grades and not how to think.  That's not 100% true (and why we don't filter out those resumes immediately), but the correlation is flat to negative.
