Lying about SAT score for PE RecruitingSubscribe
I've been reading about headhunters using your SAT scores in order to determine candidacy for private equity firms. I've read that there are cutoffs, and I assume I'd be below that cutoff with a 1200/1600 SAT score (no, it's not on my resume).
When considering the possibility that I could be blocked out of interviewing at firms where I'd like to work, it is possible to navigate around this obstacle? Now, with an SAT score of 1200, it probably goes without saying that I'm at a nontarget. But I think that removing the bad SAT as a roadblock could probably help me break in.
Do private equity firms or headhunters verify SAT scores as part of some kind of background check?
Edit 1: I'm not considering putting the fake SAT score on my resume, rather I'd tell it to the recruiter who (i assume) would use it to filter which candidates they want to send to the firm. I guess they could send it over to the PE firm too, but do PE firms jump through the hoops necessary to check something like an SAT score?
