Is Your Student Applying Test Optional? Think Twice….

by | Jan 23, 2024

Submitting test scores is a crucial component of the college application process. These scores, often from standardized tests like the SAT or ACT, provide admissions committees with a standardized measure of a student’s academic abilities. They serve as an objective benchmark, offering colleges valuable insights into an applicant’s readiness for higher education. While other elements of an application, such as GPA and extracurricular activities, provide a broader picture, test scores offer a standardized comparison across a diverse pool of candidates. Additionally, strong test scores can enhance an applicant’s competitiveness and serve as a positive factor in the overall admissions decision. Therefore, prospective college students should recognize the significance of submitting their test scores, as it plays a pivotal role in shaping their academic journey and future opportunities.
