Some Colleges Reject “Score Choice”

Karl Schellscheidt

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comIt seems that Stanford and a few other colleges have rejected Score Choice — the College Board’s new policy that will allow students who take the SAT multiple times to send colleges only their best scores. Stanford’s Dean of admissions claims that Score Choice gives students who can afford to take the SAT several times an unfair advantage over those who cannot afford to do so.

Harvard University and The University of Chicago, among other colleges and universities, have accepted Score Choice.

A few thoughts:

1. It seems that Score Choice will make taking the SAT a less stressful experience for students. (In other words, it allows students to “have a bad day.”)

2. The College Board offers fee waivers for students with limited financial resources.

3. The ACT Corporation has always maintained a similar score-reporting policy.
