Though I am not going to publish a new post every single time a school announces that they have extended their test-optional policy to future admission cycles, the announcements by both the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University could hasten moves by other institutions. Good news!
The announcement by Penn State University (test optional through Fall 2023!) last week is evidence of the fact that state boards CAN get their proverbial acts together and make decisions quickly in the best interest of future applicants. Let’s hope large systems here in North Carolina and neighboring states do as they should and make announcements in the near future.
