By now, seniors applying to college have a realistic idea of the likely range where their test scores are falling. If students are concerned about how their scores might affect their admissions outcomes, they should check which colleges and universities are available on a “test optional” basis on http://www.fairtest.org .
From Bowdoin College (Brunswick, ME) being the first college to offer admission on a score optional basis in 1969, to 23 colleges being test optional in 2006, to the list of 105 score optional colleges and universities— there are excellent options for virtually all students on the http://www.FairTest.org list .
Take a moment to review the list and consider applying test optional to a college or university which interests you!
