The Return of the SAT

The SAT is not gone, in fact it is coming back to college admissions requirements because, it turns out, lowering expectations of young people is not good for anyone.

The University of Austin says it will reinstate the SAT requirement after dropping it during the pandemic. When it looked at admissions from previous years, it found that students who took standardized tests performed better in college than those who didn’t. Shocking, right? Having a commitment to academics turns out to be a good predictor of academic performance. Who’d have thought?

Elite universities like Yale, Dartmouth and Brown have also brought back the SAT as a requirement for application.
