SATgate!
Aug 14, 2020 Season 1 Episode 7
Smriti Mehta and Paul Connor

In this episode, we discuss the recent decision by University of California to get rid of the SAT test as part of the undergraduate admissions process. We talk about the Psychology Today articles that recently touched on this, the recommendations from the UC Academic Senate's Standardized Testing Task Force (STTF), and the recent lawsuits against universities for discriminating against Asian and Asian-American students.

We also realized that we're no professors at University of Toronto and should probably not drink while podcasting.
