Thoughts on SAT adversity scores?

Hey yall, I was just wondering What your thoughts on the SATs new adversity scores were.

On the one hand, I admire the idea and what it is trying to do. It provides the opportunity for added social mobility for those who dont have as much opportunity.

On the other hand, I feel like this is a blatant overjustification and has the effect of just increasing the effort that thousands of "well-off" students put into doing well... and the adversity score just makes things harder and harder. Additionally, I feel like it just cant possibly be accurate enough. For example, I know someone who lives in my area and is hella smart and hardworking. They have worked super hard and have spent very little money on education over the course of their life, but because they live in a well off area overall their adversity score will be quite low... I feel that is simply unfair.
