How is the SAT not an anti-trust violation? [Letter]

Marin Langlieb, the young junior from Dulaney High School who questions the SAT will do well in the future ("The SAT is execrable (look it up)," Aug. 4). She does not need the SAT.

Why is this third party organization (a business) combining with a college or a university (a business selling an education service) to allocate or deny admission to higher education necessary? Why is not the record of a student in high school sufficient? Pay your money to the college or university, either pass or fail.

In any other business this combination would be considered an anti-trust violation.

One other suggestion, consider hiring Ms. Langlieb for her writing skill!

H. Glen Miller, Wiseburg
