Extending Test-Optional Policies

Every day things seem to shift and change in the college admissions landscape. Add in a pandemic and things become even murkier. As you know from reading our blog posts, the test-optional narrative isn’t a free pass if you are aiming high. We still recommend that our students prep for and take the ACT or SAT and APs! We will keep you posted on the 2021-2022 standardized testing policies for many of the top tier colleges and universities.

TEST-OPTIONAL VS. TEST BLIND

Keep in mind there is a difference between test optional and NOT ACCEPTING tests like the UC schools– we will follow the news for you and keep you updated.
