On Thursday, Washington Post stated that, starting in autumn 2019, Stanford and Princeton will no more require applicants to submit an ACT or SAT essay score. They join the ranks of Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and University of north park in waiving the necessity in 2010.
University representative E.J. Miranda published in a contact towards the everyday that the ACT or SAT essay score remains “strongly recommended,” despite no more being required.
“Coursework (such as for instance accelerated honors, AP, IB, and writing courses) will get more scrutiny and either the necessary SAT or ACT could be the focus,” Miranda published. “And, along side faculty, the workplace of admissions will look at alternatives to advertise good writing.”
Deciding on Stanford year that is next be cheaper for pupils whom choose to not ever match the optional ACT/SAT percentage of the applying. Taking the essay that is SAT the full total price of the exam by as much as $17, whereas using the ACT essay raises the full total price by as much as $16.50.
