A lawsuit spearheaded by Public Counsel through its project, Opportunity Under Law, against the University of California system is claiming that the UC’s new test-optional policy is discriminatory. Back in the spring, the UC Board of Regents voted to make standardized tests optional for the next two years before becoming test blind afterward. Opportunity Under Law’s lawsuit claims the test policy does not apply to scholarships for the next four years. It also points out there is “tremendous lack of transparency” in the admission process.
Other than creating an algorithm based on some combination of test scores and grades, we’re not sure how else the admission process can become transparent.
