    The bottom line is that if you had submitted scores and were accepted you would have been accepted without them, and if you didn't submit scores and were rejected you would have been rejected even if you had sent them in.

    Regarding SAT subject tests, Yale says "recommended but not required." I'm not sure I would read that and conclude that it absolutely supports your "bottom line."

    Just went through process, my D20 college counselor was very clear on which schools are not really subject test optional - I don’t think it is big secret.

    When it comes to "definitely not optional" schools, Georgetown immediately comes to mind. I want to say Tufts as well. Not saying you cannot get into Georgetown without good subject test scores, but it is making things very hard for yourself.

    As for other schools: probably the Ivies, but I don not think they care about them to the extent Georgetown does.

    Tufts no longer asks for subject tests or the writing portion of either the SAT or ACT.
