LOS ANGELES, CA – Local 29-year-old office coordinator Maisy Azoff has accomplished “plenty” at this point in her career, but still can’t get enough of the “oohs” and “aahs” she hears when she brings up her high school test scores.
“When you get a 32 on the ACT, it’s ALWAYS relevant!” Azoff proclaims in a recent Facebook comment on a friend’s pregnancy announcement. The comment received three “likes.”
It’s almost a waste of time to have studied for the tests at all, Azoff attests, if you stop caring about them after you apply to college. “My coworkers were riveted at Jillian’s going away party when I told them how I pulled off not one but two fives on AP tests after I broke my wrist when I fell off my drum major podium when I was drum major in my school’s marching band, which was an especially competitive band,” Azoff gushes. “If I hadn’t told them, they wouldn’t have known how much of a bad-A B I was ten years ago! And my other AP scores were also very good. Just not fives.”
Azoff is also well-known in her circles for retelling her famous SAT test story. She got a flat tire on the way to the test and still managed to pull off a 2260. “It was so stressful and crazy, but that’s why it’s still one of my favorite stories even after twelve more years of other life experiences. That, and I got a 2260, which is pretty cool.”
There has even been some film industry attention in Azoff’s achievements after an online stream showed her asking a question at an advance screening of Trolls this past weekend. “What do you think of people who say GPA doesn’t matter when you’re applying to entry level industry positions, even if your GPA was 4.6?” Trolls directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn looked to each other, shrugged, and started to answer as they realized Azoff was exiting the theater.
When asked if there is a reasonable age cutoff for when high school test scores become irrelevant to her adult life, Azoff immediately said, “Of course not.” Several of her coworkers and acquaintances, when asked, do describe Azoff as “pretty smart.”
