Malala Yousafzai is the Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban on her way to school; she survived to became a world-famous advocate for girls’ education.

She won the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy and courage.

She decided she wants to go to Stanford University to study politics and philosophy.

But Stanford will not accept her unless she takes the SAT and presumably scores the requisite points.

I can understand that Stanford wants to maintain its high standards, but shouldn’t a Nobel Prize count for more than an SAT score?
