On the topic of American

said that although the

before they give those sanctions

Colleges starting to place less
emphasis on SAT scores
(CPS) In the movie "How I
Got into College," the
protagonist tries to make up for
his poor Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) scores by sending the
college he wants to attend a
humorous videotape of himself.
Now Lewis and Clark
College in Oregon says it will
turn fiction to reality.
In late September, campus
officials said that, starting next
school year, they will let students
apply by submitting a "portfolio"
of original work along with high
school transcripts. Students that
try it won't have to send their
SAT or American College

The idea, said Peter Brown,
Lewis and Clark's dean of
admissions, will attract "a bright
student who is highly motivated
but doesn't want to be
categorized" by a SAT score.

During his speech Carlucci
said that if there is a
confrontation with Iraq, it is
unrealistic to think that U.S.
forces can come out of it
unscathed simply by using its
air superiority.
On the decision about how

allies should use, Carlucci said

College reformers often claim
the SAT in particular does not
reveal much more about test
takers than how well they have
mastered accurate guessing.
The test, critics add, does not
accurately forecast how well
female high school seniors will
do in college.
"The SAT," Brown
maintained, "has become a
symbol of the statistical approach
to college admissions."
Mindful of the criticism and
the defections, trustees of the
College Board, the organization
that oversees the SAT, are
pondering changes to make the
test less "statistical."
