Columbia University offers Score Choice for 2012-2013 Academic Year

Columbia University has officially instituted the Score Choice policy for the 2012-2013 academic year. Score choice refers to the applicant’s decision to withhold certain SAT and ACT scores from their college application; previously, Columbia required each applicant to submit all SAT and ACT scores. Cornell University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University remain the only Ivy League schools not offering the score choice policy.

If current students still submit multiple test scores, Columbia University promises to evaluate the student based on the highest score. And Columbia now allows students to submit the ACT plus Writing instead of the SAT plus two subject tests.

Students: remember to do your research! Go directly to the college website to discover exactly what test scores and materials are needed or not needed for your application. Do not make the careless mistake of submitting mediocre SAT or ACT scores if they are not needed. The college admissions process is an organic process that changes every day – and you can stay ahead of the game if you do your research.
