With a nearly flawless match, No. 1 Stanford defeated the No. 8 seeded Florida Gators in straight sets in the NCAA regional final, clinching a berth in the tournament’s Final Four for the first time since 2008.
With championships in 1994 and 2004, is this the year for women's volleyball?
At this point, though, shouting “Shut it down for Michael Brown!” while parading through shopping malls in St. Louis or while chained to the BART train is a fairly meaningless and insignificant act. Protesting against a grand jury’s decision as a way to achieve some sort of betterment for the situation of black people vis-à-vis violence or the police will ultimately change nothing about those situations.
Stanford sees applicant pools of 40,000 or more. more than 5.07% of applicants have SAT scores in the 2200-2400 range student, so the 2000 or so who make the final cut must have done something exceptional other than receiving a perfect SAT score to make themselves stand out. Stanford has the opportunity to be the first elite institution to formally eliminate the SAT from its admissions considerations and inspire others leaders in higher education to follow. Without SAT scores, higher education could return its focus on identifying true, deep, and brilliant thinkers and developing them to their fullest potential instead of rewarding the most “excellent sheep.”
