Perhaps they were thinking about SAT scores. The median SAT verbal for Princeton and Harvard is around 790 I think.
Browsing last years results (I made a perl script to help do it faster), I see the following scores for students admitted to Princeton:
mean Verbal = 684
median verbal = 680
(note the last one had a very good graduate gpa from Latin America)
