There's an interesting story here about a guy who sought out to get the lowest possible SAT score. The lowest possible raw score is a -36 (which no one has ever gotten to my knowledge), because you lose points for incorrect answers. The lowest possible adjusted score is 400 (which quite a few people have gotten.)

The funniest part was that he already has a masters degree from Harvard, but wanted his new low SAT scores sent to Cal Tech, MIT, Harvard, and a few others. I can imagine the laughs that the admissions people got from the student who was in the bottom 1% of US students.
