Dropping the SAT to increase diversity?

I was about to applaud Wake Forest for dropping the SAT because I thought that now they would use pure academics.

Turns out its purely to increase diversity in its student body.  Now I am a fan of socio-economic affirmative action, but how far from meritocracy can schools take us?

Yes I'm aware that the SAT is flawed, but at least it levels the playing field...
