The SAT will now compute an "Adversity Score" for each student and modify their SAT result. In keeping with fairness and transparency - this modifier will be kept secret from the student and post-secondary institution.
Edit: This is a GOLDEN opportunity for a challenger to develop their own objective entrance exam and offer that as a basis for entry. The post-secondary institutions that are truly devoted to meritocracy will likely embrace this. It won't be long before there is a clear separation in performance between the 'social-engineering' schools like Harvard and the actual engineering schools like CalTech.
