    SAT score too low? Soon you can get into the college of your choice anyway, when your 'adversity score' is factored in:

    Seattle Times • Coming soon to SAT: ‘adversity score’

    "The 'overall disadvantage level,' known in admission circles as the 'adversity score,' will be a single number from 1 to 100. With 50 set as the average, under a formula established by the College Board, higher scores will indicate higher adversity. Colleges that use it will see the number on a template called an 'environmental context dashboard,' which also includes data on Advanced Placement particuipation and SAT scores at the applicant’s high school."

    "The adversity score, which officials described Thursday, will focus on social and economic factors associated with a student’s school and neighborhood, such as median family income, crime reports, housing circumstances, college attendance rates and parental education, according to the College Board. The formula does not consider race, the College Board said"
