The new SAT (which looks a lot like the American College Testing exam) will, in most cases, give colleges a tool to help determine whether the student will be accepted to that institution of higher learning. But at Bard College in upstate New York, the SAT carries little weight.
They’re dumb. They are useless. Doing well on a test has nothing to do with learning and nothing to do with being successful in life. It helps you get into college and nothing else," said Dr. Botstein.
