New Changes to UC Admissions Eligiblity

Wow, I never thought the day would come.

The UC Regents has actually changed the eligibility requirements starting with the next UC freshman class when it enters in 2012. 

I don't want to highlight on many details, but the biggest one that stood out was:

Two SAT Subject Tests will no longer be required for admission. However, students can still choose to submit their scores for consideration as part of their application, just as they do now with AP scores. The Subject Tests also may be recommended for certain majors.

You know, I would be against this rule, but I realized that this might actually be somewhat good. People are still going to compete with the subject tests for the spots, and there are people with special talents who might not need subject tests to prove that they contribute to the unique characteristics of a UC campus.
