Not trying to be a dick but the fact that you didn't try would also tell the firms something as well in the amount that you value your education. If they see a bad score on the SAT it tells the firms one of two things,
1. The person is not super intelligent (which isn't you in this case) or
2. The person didn't try on the test, which in turn would lead to questions of work ethic and value of education, both of which would be good pieces of info for a company.
I think in the end its a decent, lower importance standard for companies to view as it does give some valuable information.
