Episode Details

In March 2022, California State University permanently removed SAT and ACT tests from its admissions process after a nationwide debate over the fairness of standardized testing. This led many to wonder how the changes will affect students who are preparing for college – and if the removal of standardized tests could make admissions less transparent and more subjective.

Ben Nelson is the founder of Minerva University: the most selective university in the country, with an acceptance rate lower than any Ivy League University. Assessments change every year and they are designed to evaluate cognitive, social, and emotional skills of students that are not inherently obvious, resulting in an assessment that cannot be gamed. Minerva University offers no advantages for the wealthy or well-connected. This ensures that despite Minerva’s selectivity, the student body is far more representative of the socio-economic distribution in society than at other highly selective institutions.
