Fewer than half of the country's colleges and universities are requiring applicants to submit SAT writing scores, and says the College Board spokeswoman Chiara Coletti, "We have never recommended that schools use it in admissions decisions right away. Since this is a new test, it makes sense to be careful in how it's used the first year." Said Steven Syverson, Dean of Admissions at Lawrence University, "When we heard the test-prep industry say it would add $200 million a year to coaching revenues, we just said, 'That's it. It's out of line, it's out of whack, and we don't want to be part of it.' "
