Baylor SAT Update

Following up on my earlier post on this, Baylor has decided to no longer award bookstore credit or tuition rewards to admitted freshman who retake the SAT in hopes of increasing the class’ average score.

From The Chronicle of Higher Ed:

“We shouldn’t have offered the incentives,” said Lori W. Fogleman, director of media relations. Baylor’s “motives were pure,” she said, but “we’ve heard the criticism and take that to heart.”

This is once instance where student newspaper reporting really made a difference.
