This project is an examination of college placement in terms of SAT scores, high school performance and MBTI diversity. Through the use of multiple linear regression, the relative predictive power of the model has shown "course difficulty" as the second strongest indicator of placement despite having been overlooked in earlier studies. The stage has been set through this project for a reconsideration of the degree of influence SAT scores, by themselves, have on college admissions.
