Re "Putting Them to the Test," Jan. 27: John J. Moores, chairman of the University of California Board of Regents, is incorrect in placing SAT scores at the top of the list of criteria for college admission. The test cannot accurately predict how a student will do in a college environment. My own scholastic career bears this out. I graduated from high school with a 4.0 but with an SAT score of 1040. I made the dean's list every semester while at USC, earning a bachelor of arts degree along with two minors, in English and French.

The owner of the San Diego Padres baseball franchise was among those who hired Webster L. Hubbell after he resigned his high-ranking Justice Department position three years ago. Like others who hired Hubbell, John J. Moores, the Padres owner, acknowledged that he had demanded and received little work for the money he sent Hubbell, who had resigned amid allegations of impropriety.

Brianna Dollinger was admitted to some top-flight colleges last year, including Vanderbilt University, Vassar College and Cornell University. Not UC Berkeley, though. The state university campus, which she had considered a "backup" choice, sent her a rejection letter. "I was surprised," said Dollinger, 18, who figured her SAT score of 1490, A- average and rigorous course load at Harvard-Westlake in Studio City made her a worthy candidate.

UCLA rejected more than 3,000 students with extremely high scores on the SAT entrance exam over the past two years and accepted more than 900 students with results that were far below the campus average. The newly released figures from UCLA mirror a similar disclosure earlier this month regarding admissions at UC Berkeley. The two campuses are the most selective of the eight undergraduate institutions in the University of California system.
