Test Optional Application

I am curious is anyone has applied Test optional and was accepted or denied. My D applied test optional because her act score of 26 didn't represent her as a person.

She attends a CA elite private school, had a 3.97 WGPA and 3.87 UNGPA, took APS, was on varsity sports teams for all 4 years, danced out of school 9 hours a week, and had leadership, and community services roles. She had a history of just not being a good test taker all the way back to her ERBS in middle school. I was just curious if anyone actually gets in....

    yes they do, as there was an article in the hatchet that showed that the test optional kids did just as well as those who were not. So I do believe that GW really is more than just looking at test scores. If everything else is there, that is what is important

    Yes, my daughter applied test optional for ED1 and was accepted and received a scholarship. GW truly is holistic in their reviews. Good luck!

    My son wanted to apply without test scores but accidentally checked the box that said he would send scores. He called and asked them to change it to ‘no test scores’. They refused but told him that his scores would have very little bearing on his overall app. His SAT is high 1200s.

    He was accepted with an $18,000 Presidential Scholarship.
