Alison Stewart: What do you mean by saving his life?

Sam Eshaghoff: I mean a kid who has a horrible grade point average, who no matter how much he studies is gonna totally bomb this test, by giving him an amazing score I totally give him this like a new lease on life. He's gonna go to a totally new college, he's gonna be bound for a totally new career, and a totally new path in life.
