BLAINE, Minn. (WCCO) — A senior at Blaine High School has something to celebrate today. He got a near-perfect score on his college entrance exams.
Tobey Thomas said he got a perfect 36 out of 36 on his ACT and he didn’t do too bad on his SAT either — he scored 2360 out of 2400.
And that’s a good thing because he’s going to need those smarts for what he wants to do when he grows up.
“I’d like to be a neurosurgeon, if at all possible,” he said. “I mean, I’m kinda of clumsy and I’d have to get that out of me. I think that would be a great job, my dream job.”
Thomas said he got those scores without spending a lot of time studying.
He said he hasn’t decided on a college yet, but is looking at schools on the East Coast and a few in Illinois.
