College Guidance: the Impact of Test-Optional Policies

For the past two years, the majority of colleges and universities have adopted test-optional policies for the SAT and ACT. In doing so, other parts of the application including essays, extracurricular activities, resume, and letters of recommendation have become increasingly important. The National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) has just announced a study to examine the impact of new testing policies on college applications, admission, and enrollment. If you have wondered how this change may affect your student’s college admissions, you will be interested in this research: the effects of test-optional policies at 150 universities.


At Learning Associates, we utilize a holistic approach to college admissions and have always prioritized the subjective components (even when test scores were required) to strengthen each application and distinguish each applicant. If you have questions pertaining to college admissions or would like to learn more about our program, please contact Larry Blumenstyk at larry@learningassoc.com.
