Colleges not looking at ACT/SAT tests

July 17, 2017, WBAP Dallas: Growing Number of Colleges No Longer Considering Standardized Test Scores During Admissions Process The level of stress over college-entrance exams like the SAT for high school seniors may soon be a thing of the past as a growing number of schools no longer consider standardized test scores when admitting students. Educational Consultant Catherine Marrs said testing isn’t the only option. “Most colleges today introduced the freshman seminar, which is basically a way to bring up those students who are not college ready,” she said. Marrs said the real college preparation should be in the classrooms, not on a test.
