Would you feel better about it if they included height as a factor? I want to make sure they're including protections for your victimhood too.

"this new number, called an adversity score by college admissions officers, is calculated using 15 factors including the crime rate and poverty levels from the student's high school and neighborhood"

I wonder how heavily weighted the crime stats for bribing mid-level employees to gain college admission for your kids will be monkey

Nothing is obscene provided it is done in bad taste.

With all the resources at their disposal, there's absolutely no excuse to get below a 1300 (on 1600 scale) on the SAT.

If you have unlimited access to tutors, prep courses, study guides, and you STILL get an 1150, should you really be going somewhere even as prestigious as ASU?

They had to ramp things up because equal was obstructing their idea of equitable.

I’m so glad the SAT people are doing this.

That's a really intelligent reply.

Glad you're interested in being an informed decisionmaker.

They already have an obvious advantage coming from "upper middle class Whitesville", with involved parents that love them and have pushed education and helped them from early on.

So, I think the thought is, that this new scoring would try to help level the playing field, for the kids that didn't/don't have that.

Sounds like a good idea, to me. shrug
