First the SAT, Next the MCAT?

A number of schools have decided that prospective students need not take the SAT. In this article, we find out that East Carolina’s medical school has now made the MCAT (medical college admission test) unnecessary for some students. The reason, naturally, is the need for more “diversity.”

Officials say that students admitted under this special, no-MCAT program are “good students,” but we have to wonder if others who took the MCAT and scored well but were not admitted wouldn’t have been better.
