IN A STRONGLY WORDED LETTER to college presidents, corporate
   leaders on Wednesday urged academic officials to place less
   emphasis on the SAT and other standardized tests when
   evaluating applicants. Executives from companies like Shell
   Oil and Verizon Communications, joined by members of the
   National Urban League, said in the letter that entrance exams
   do not measure the qualities most crucial for success in the
   business world.
