Colleges requiring SAT Subject Tests: Are they going out of style? #nancygriesemer   #SAT   #Subjecttests  

- According to Cigus Vanni, long time Executive Board Member and former member of New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling NACAC’s Professional Development Committee, the number of colleges and universities requiring SAT Subject Tests for at least some section of their applicant group has shrunk from about 55 twenty years ago to only about two dozen institutions this year.

Dorms You’ll Never See on the Campus Tour +The New York Times @NYTimes #students   #dorms   #campuslife  

- With modern campuses caught up in what is popularly known as the amenities arms race, it is hard to blame incoming freshmen for expecting cushy suites and flat-screen TVs.

- But most colleges have a residence hall or two that you’ll never see on the campus tour: the ones that look suspiciously like the fluorescent-lit dorms of yore.

George Washington University applicants no longer need to take admissions tests +Washington Post @washpost +The George Washington University  #testoptional   #students  

- George Washington University dropped its testing requirement for most freshman admissions Monday, becoming one of the largest and most prominent schools to declare that its applicants don’t have to take the SAT or ACT.

A growing number of colleges and universities are 'test-optional,' even as millions of students a year take the ACT or SAT.

The rise and demise of the much-loathed SAT +Washington Post @washpost  #students   #SAT  

- The SAT was modeled on IQ tests that had been popularized by the Army during World War I. Rather than testing knowledge or achievement — qualities that are inevitably tied to past education and upbringing — the exam sought to determine an applicant’s aptitude.
