THAT WAS FAST: MIT reinstates SAT/ACT requirement for incoming classes. A friend asks: “Did the entire admission department threaten to quit? Or did the incoming class turn out to be morons?”

I’m guessing the latter, but who knows?

UPDATE: Ann Althouse: “From the policy announcement, there’s an excess of delicacy — to the point where you might find it funny or terribly disturbing. . . . I’m giving this post the tag ‘stupid’ because of the administration. I don’t think any of the students are stupid. They’re just at the wrong school because a wrong was done to them.”
