Which schools don't take the ACT?

I think the majority of colleges take the ACT nowadays. But are you aware of any of the larger schools NOT accepting the ACT? Princeton for example, I hear, seems to discourage the ACT..

    Harvey Mudd is the only top school that doesn't take it.

    Princeton now takes it.

    Princeton had like 99% SAT ....so I'd be skeptical

    I think this year is supposed to be the first year from what I hear, though could be wrong.

    Also, Caltech is really big on the ACT (w/ a 99% submission of the SAT) though things might change now that they're on the common app but probably not.

    I figured it'd be a good idea to ask, in case someone knew off the top of their head.

    So Caltech likes the ACT, but gets mostly SATs? Is that what you're trying to say, Tony?

    If Princeton just now takes it...I wouldn't count on the ACT.
