PJ should have a special "I SWEAR I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP" section. https://www.foxnews.com/us/sat-to-use-adversity-score-for-students-applying-to-college SAT to use 'adversity score' for students applying to college The College Board, which oversees the SAT exam used by most U.S. colleges during the admissions process, plans to introduce an “adversity score” which takes into consideration the social and economic background of every student. The move is likely to reignite the debate over race and class in college admissions. The new adversity score is being calculated using 15 factors, including the crime rate and poverty level from the student's high school and neighborhood, The Wall Street Journal first reported. Students won't be privy to their scores but colleges and universities will see them when reviewing applications. Sorry, (to those of you who just spit your lunch across the table.) This is real. Basically, if you barely graduate high school but there are drug dealers in your neighborhood, drive by shootings and other crimes, you may get placed in a college ahead of someone in a nice neighborhood who had a much higher score. And of course, you'll screw up in college, fail to graduate and have a $90,000 student loan debt to bitch about. Think this is a joke? "There are a number of amazing students who may have scored less (on the SAT) but have accomplished more," David Coleman, chief executive of the College Board, said. "We can't sit on our hands and ignore the disparities of wealth reflected in the SAT." This is a national grade accrediting board engaging in class envy.
