Adversity Score?

What do you think of an adversity score to be considered when you take your SAT tests?

It’s going to happen at 150 colleges later this year and to all colleges in 2020. The idea is to level the playing field for people who come from lower income places. They’ve been testing this at a handful of colleges for years to see if it’s a valid program. The SAT has been criticized for years because wealthy students earn higher scores, on average, than do those who are from low-income families.

That has led to some universities dropping the use of S-A-T test scores in their admissions process. This is a way for the makers of the test to stay relevant….but some say….this is just flat out unfair.
