Fraud of the SAT Cottage Industry

Have any of you watched the new NAAS-NEWS video called "Fraud of the SAT Cottage Industry. ?

It is a great video. The video deals with the SAT cottage industry. Millions of dollars each year are being made by The College Board, and members of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA; their alphabet-related pet dog, NACAC, is run by Valerie Williams.

Experts, news media, and many persons, consider the SAT test to be an untrue indicator of potential success. In fact, the SAT test has been accused of being racist, unfair, and unnecessary. Yet, over many years, many member colleges and universities of NASFAA have required that students take the test. This collaboration of NASFAA/NACAC members has provided fertile ground for fraud, and immense profits.

Students and parents should not be forced to take the SAT test. Also, NASFAA and The College Board both have ties dating back to 1996 with federal informant Mark Kantrowitz. Kantrowitz fed bogus information to the DOJ, USPS, and the FTC. His business of deceit ("financial-aid expert", and false "Reliability Reports") and evasion was sponsored by NASFAA.

Several years later, the N.Y. Attorney General busted many members of NASFAA for the student-loan fraud crisis. This proves you cannot trust a counselor who is a member of NASFAA/NACAC. Many news-reporters continue to quote Kantrwitz but do not disclose his background and work as a federal informant.

Are you making The College Board rich??

Each year, thousands of students across America line the pockets of The College Baord by participating in a sham test that fleeces the pockets and purses of millions of Americans each year.

As many of you may know, The College Board is a member of NASFAA. NASFAA is a non-profit organization that boasts memberships amongst hundreds of prestigious colleges and universities. Though a concerted effort and deliberate colloboration, for many years each of the member schools and universities of NASFAA have required that prospective students take an SAT and/or ACT test to allegedly judge their propects for success at an institution of hiring learning.

During this time period, The College Board pocketed an enormous amount of money, and its officers became quite wealthy.

As a smoke screen, and a possible eye at limiting access to competing dollars, The College Board hooked up with NASFAA, and several other members of NASFAA, in a varierty of self-serving ventures. Eventually, the attorney generals of several states began sniffing for clues. Soon, the Student loan scandal became public.

Within the past few years, as more and more Americans and schools have debugged this pay-for-nothing scheme, more schools have opted to make the SAT an option rather than a reqirement.
