Predicting College Success

The Crimson reports:
The best predictor of college success is not the SAT, but rather tests that examine knowledge of a standardized curriculum, such as SAT subject tests, said [Harvard's Dean of Admissions William] Fitzsimmons.
The article also suggests that Harvard might at some point make the SAT optional and, in its place, rely more heavily on SAT subject tests in making admission decisions.
