Indeed, to assign a number that accurately measures their adversity seems a perversity. It is condescending, if not demeaning, to put a 38+ or 17- on another human being’s childhood personal circumstances, hopes and despair, dreams and disappointments. Higher education, which is supposed to free us from unfairly profiling other human beings, has introduced a new profile with adversity scoring. Though couched in numbers to give it the pretense of scientific accuracy, this metric introduces another unexpected bias. It is a bias against the innumerable and immeasurable adversities experienced by today’s young individuals who do not appear on the SAT adversity map.
