    This should be something that universities do individually when considering applicants rather than relying on generalized number from the SAT :twocents:

    Isn't that what Affirmative Action is (was) for?

    although imperfect (I'm sure some people's hardship will be under/over represented), I do applaud them for doing this. Hopefully it has a positive effect

    SAT is trying to stay relevant as more schools stop taking it into consideration

    I wonder if the family environment metrics are self reported

    Honestly, reading the nextdoor.com posts from RRR, I’m sure your kids will receive a pretty high adversity score.

    SAT and ACT are in a heated competition for market share and influence. This seems like a play to allow universities to offload some affirmative action considerations onto the testing company.

    the really smart Hollywood parents will now move into poor, crime-ridden neighborhoods to give their kids yet another unfair advantage

    Which means the sat should probably focus on doing what it already does than branching out into this

    Ha. We've seen what the Aunt Beckys of the world will do to get their kids into college. Establishing residence in the projects will be childs play.
