Since Harvard dropped the ACT/SAT essay requirement, do they even look at them anymore if students do send essay scores?

    Since Harvard dropped the ACT/SAT essay requirement,
    Harvard is one of many schools, including Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, Duke, and Caltech which have all dropped the requirement in recent weeks.
    do they even look at them anymore
    Well, it's on the application and score report, so they can't unsee them. But if your real question is if the score matters, I would say it's much much less important than other aspects of the application package.
