How Did the University of California Vote on the SAT/ACT? :)

The smiley face was a give away! They voted to eliminate the standardized tests for California students by 2025. You can read about it in the LA Times, here.

Why am I so excited about this? Because this could change the landscape for college admission. When a big system like the University of California makes a definitive move like this, others may follow. And ideally, standardized tests will disappear from the application process, removing some of the angst from the stressful process of applying to college. Kudos to the UC Regents!
