I have a completely different view of this issue, as my DS is a 2E (twice-exceptional) student, meaning he is gifted but also has a learning disability (dyslexia). He has accommodations and his LD has definitely affected his GPA, putting him at a disadvantage for UC admissions. However, since he is gifted and very bright, he can do really well on the testing in order to show his potential, and somewhat make up for the lower grades. He was signed up to take the SAT or ACT in March, June and July and was cancelled, and finally was able to take the ACT in September , and got a 35 (and perfect score on 2 sections), which would help improve his chances of admission. However, since someone else with a disability felt that testing was discriminatory towards their chances, now he is barred from having that option? If I had the money and lawyers I could argue the other way, that this is discriminatory towards my son. I think they should have left it all as test optional, so people could submit or not and admissions readers could take everything into consideration. My DD is a UCLA junior getting straight A’s. My DS has more potential than her, yet he will probably not get in at any UC. This is just wrong.
