Navigating Yale’s Reinstated SAT/ACT Requirements: How ConnectPrep Supports Students and Families

Understanding the Impact

Yale’s policy change underscores the enduring importance of standardized tests in college admissions. While some argue that these exams provide a uniform metric to assess academic readiness, others raise concerns about accessibility and equity. This debate highlights the need for a strategic approach to test preparation—one that recognizes the strengths and challenges of each student.
