The SAT – a rite of passage that most high school student’s encounter to continue this journey we call life. I’ll never forget waking up at 7 am on a perfectly good Saturday to take a four-hour exam that would decide the next step in my life. It was beyond nerve-wracking; and even after hours upon hours of studying, I was still not prepared. I said it then and I’ll say it now: I don’t think this test design is the best option for colleges to decide who gains entrance.
