Confusion About the College Board’s New Score Choice Policy

October 2, 2009 

Many students, parents, and guidance counselors are expressing feelings of confusion, disorientation, and even anger at the College Board’s new Score Choice Policy. The new policy, which began with the March, 2009 administration of the SAT exam, gives students the option of choosing which SAT scores to submit along with their college applications. However, due to the newness of the policy, and the way colleges are reacting to the policy, there are many questions about the best way for students to use, or not use, Score Choice. The following are links to recent articles on the policy, which hopefully will shed some light on the issue:
