SAT and ACT as standardized tests for college admissions. Good way of evaluating high school students for college, or no?
They are a phenomenal way.
They're imperfect, but I can't think of any better objective alternative.
I agree. There's got to be a standardized, objective way of evaluating prospective students.
Worked against me, in a sense.
I was an unorganized student & did not apply myself in areas of which I had little interest.
As a result, my GPA was low. My SAT was high. To colleges I applied to, this = lazy.
Was denied admission despite scholarship offers & had to have strings pulled to get in
