Haven't you read? SAT scores have no value anymore. :)
Georgia Tech and UGA admissions still require the SATs from its students. I have heard that UC Admissions removed the SAT requirements among its applicants since 2020. How do you and your friends feel about that? Do you think that UC Admissions made the right decision?
I do.

SATs are just a pocket industry that doesn't really prove a student's "aptitude" for college.

Psychological profiles might be better. :)
In 2010, Georgia Institute of Technology's acceptance rate was 61% ranking nationally #35. In 2010, the Student demographic profile 70% male, 30% female, 67% White, 17% Asian, 7% Black, 5% Hispanic.

What is interesting is that the Student demographic profile of Georgia Institute of Technology looks very similar today to what California Institute of Technology and MIT looked like in 2010. In 2038, The student demographic profile of Georgia Institute of Technologh should look similar to what Cal Tech and MIT looks like today. Georiga Tech will soon become the first Asian majority Public University in the state of Georgia.

I predict that Georgia Institute of Technology will soon be ranked among the top 25 Colleges in US News ranking competing with University of Michigan, University of Virginia, and University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.

The Asian demographic is what public school districts want to juice their numbers.

Fletcher Elementary school in Orange went from a 3/10 to a 6/10 using the Mandarin immersion program.
They are now rebranded as Fletcher Mandarin Language Academy instead of just "elementary school", so they can get more Asians!

Now Anaheim has just started a Mandarin immersion program of their own.
Since Fletcher and Roosevelt are pretty close together, they are competing for the same mandarin language students.

Roosevelt is rated 4/10, but will be going up in the near future.

I see that GA colleges are also benefitting from the higher Asian student body.
Georgia Tech's International Students come from 1) China 2) India 3) South Korea
