SAT optional! SAT없이 좋은 대학 갈 수 있을까?
요즘 코로나 때문에 많은 대학들이 SAT점수를 Optional로 바꿨습니다!!
그래서 작년 입시에서 하버드 대학의 원서가 꽤 많이 늘었다고 합니다.
즉, 옜날같으면 여러가지 점수의 벽때문에 원서조차 못내밀 학생들이...한번 내보자..뭐 내본다고 손해보는것도 아닌디..
이러면서 지원을 한것이죠^^
그렇다면..과연...SAT가 optional 이라고 해서.
정말 SAT점수 없이 대학에 갈 수 있을까요????
일단 YES입니다!! 갈수 있습니다.
실제로 많은 대학들이 SAT점수 없이...학생들을 뽑았습니다.
그러나...문제는 High level...Top 대학교도 갈 수 있느냐!! 라는것입니다.
그리고 어느정도의 레벨까지가 SAT없이 갈수 있는 대학이냐???
라는것도..SAT준비여부의 관건이 되겠네요!!

Top 대학들이 SAT없는 학생들을 얼마나 뽑고 있는지?
한번 알아보도록 할게요!!
Opinion: SAT and ACT scores may be optional in college applications this year, but many top schools still rely on them => 아직까지 중요하다고 하네요^^ Last Updated: April 13, 2021 at 9:10 a.m. ETFirst Published: March 25, 2021 at 2:34 p.m. ETBy Howard Gold Three out of every four students accepted at Penn through early admissions submitted test scores; at Georgetown, that number was 93% The Georgetown University campus.

The big story in college admissions this year is the huge surge in applications over the 2019-2020 academic year. And it’s not just in early admissions, as MarketWatch reported in February. Highly selective private colleges and top state universities have seen applications skyrocket. Applications to the University of Pennsylvania increased by a third, to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by two-thirds and to Harvard by 43%, driving the acceptance rate of those already nearly-impossible-to-get-into universities even lower in the single digits. => 많은 대학들의 원서접수율이 치솟았다고 합니다^^ The nine-campus University of California system received a mind-boggling 250,000 applications, 18% higher than last year. The University of Virginia was up 17%, while applications to the University of Georgia soared by 40%. Almost everyone agrees data-on the reason: Colleges and universities went test-optional this year because of the obstacles COVID19 put data-on high-school students’ ability to take the SAT or the American College Testing (ACT) standardized tests. (The College Board, which administers the SAT, also eliminated SAT subject tests for good.) When those tests were no longer required, kids whose low scores used to prevent them from getting into schools like Yale or Vanderbilt now gave it a shot, applications boomed, and overwhelmed admissions departments pushed back decision day by a week or two. (Less-prestigious private colleges and some state universities like the 23 California State University campuses actually saw applications decline, however.) Did it work? For some it surely did, but taking the tests and submitting the scores often was the better choice for kids to get into the top schools. The University of Pennsylvania reported that three out of every four students who were accepted through early admissions submitted test scores. At Georgetown University, that number was 93%. => Upen이나 조지아 타운같은 대학에서는 여전히 SAT점수를 낸 학생들의 합격 비율이 높다고 합니다 On the other hand, more than half of those admitted early to Tufts and 71% of those who got early acceptances at Boston University did not submit test scores Pierre Huguet, CEO and co-founder of H&C Education, a Boston-based educational consulting firm, told me that “admissions officers relied pretty heavily data-on the SAT or ACT to evaluate the academic profile of a student. They were already looking at the academic results, the extracurricular profile, the letters of recommendation, but now they have to find ways to quantify some of these soft skills, and mostly the extracurricular profiles. So, it takes a lot of time. Now data-on top of that, they received lots of applications.” Huguet thinks that’s not sustainable. “We’ve already heard from a couple of Ivies that it is extremely difficult for them to evaluate the academic profile of the students without the test scores,…not just because they want to make sure that they select the most competitive students, but also because they want to make sure that they don’t struggle in college,” he said. That’s why he stresses the difference between test-optional, in which students choose whether or not to submit their scores, and test-blind, in which schools don’t even consider those scores in admissions decisions. As of February, 69 colleges and universities were test-blind this year, according to FairTest, the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, an advocacy group that opposes standardized testing. Among them: Catholic University, Loyola University New Orleans and Dickinson, Hampshire and Reed colleges as well as the California Institute of Technology, data-one of the most selective in the U.S. They also include two bellwethers—the 11-campus City University of New York and the UC and California State systems. UC, in fact, will likely stop considering the SAT and ACT through at least 2024 and plans to “create a new test that better aligns with the content the University expects students to have mastered for college readiness” or, failing that, eliminate the testing requirement altogether. This is the wild card. Will the pandemic pause lead to the big changes educational reformers have urged for years? There’s lots of research that shows SAT scores are highly correlated with family income. And with a big push to increase diversity, particularly amid the racial reckoning that followed the police killing of George Floyd, the anti-test movement is gaining momentum at all grade levels. In fact, many colleges and universities reported the surge in applications yielded a more diverse applicant pool, although it’s unclear whether that will translate into more diverse freshman classes. FairTest reports more than 1,370 U.S. colleges and universities will be test-optional next year, too. Several college counselors I’ve spoken with told me the more selective institutions still expect kids in private schools and competitive urban and suburban high schools to take the tests. “Between two students with the exact same profiles, if data-one submits the SAT or ACT scores and the other does not, I believe that the school will always favor the student who submits the scores,” said Huguet. That’s true for now, but with so much up for grabs, it may not be in the future. Howard Gold is a columnist for MarketWatch. Follow him data-on Twitter @howardrgold1.

GPA점수만으로는 학생의 학습능력을 객관적으로 평가하기 어렵기 떄문이지요! 사실 제가 학생들을 지도해봐도 우리 유학생들...거의 90프로는 성실해서.. GPA나쁜 학생들 거의 없습니다. 그럼. GPA만으로는 다 하버드감이지요..^^:; 그래서..객관적인 자료가 필요한거고.. 랭킹 50~30위 이상의 대학을 가고자 한다면 SAT를 준비하는것이 유리합니다.
