You know, I’m thinking that this is a good move as long as the alternative is fair to all students. I’m sure you’re like what are you talking about! LOL.

The board at the University of California unanimously voted to restructure their admissions policy. That included getting rid of ACT and SAT scores as a part of the admissions policy. You know, I’m actually not upset with this. At first, I was on the fence, then I said wait a minute. If the alternative is more fair, then this could be a good thing. They are set to create a test that more aligns with the University. Now, I’m not a huge fan of standardized testing. I knew a lot of smart people in school that had a great GPA, but they didn’t test well on standardized testing.

I also saw another article that said having this policy previously wasn’t fair to poor and minority Americans. I’m not sure I agree or disagree with that, but this is a big step. Other colleges could soon follow. California seems to be the leader in college changes. First it was players being allowed to be paid off the likeness of their image when it comes to sports, now this. How do you feel about this?
