How important are the SAT Subject Tests?

<p>At GWU I understand that the SAT Subject tests are not required. However, how important are they in the application process? Do they recommend them? Have any of you taken them?</p>

<p>I took them but didn't submit them (thank god, my scores were atrocious). But I think they are "strongly recommended" if you are applying to special programs i.e. honors college, and merely suggested for regular admission. They'll prolly only consider them if they make your overall application better</p>

<p>My D took 3 Subject Tests:Math, Spanish and US History. GW doesn't require them unless you are applying to one of the honors programs. However, the Math and Spanish scores can be used at GW for placement purposes once you are accepted.</p>
