On Thursday, Washington Post stated that, starting in fall 2019, Stanford and Princeton will no more require applicants to submit an ACT or SAT essay rating. They get in on the ranks of Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and University of north park in waiving the necessity this present year.
University representative E.J. Miranda had written in a message towards the constant that an ACT or SAT essay score continues to be “strongly recommended,” despite no more being required.
“Coursework (such as for example accelerated honors, AP, IB, and writing courses) will get more scrutiny and either the mandatory SAT or ACT would be the focus,” Miranda had written. “And, along side faculty, the workplace of admissions will look at options to market good writing.”
Deciding on Stanford next 12 months will be cheaper for pupils whom choose to not ever match the optional ACT/SAT percentage of the program. Taking the SAT essay raises the full total price of the exam by as much as $17, whereas using the ACT essay raises the sum total expense by as much as $16.50. For the states and specific schools that are secondary pay money for their students to just take the ACT or SAT, not absolutely all purchase the essay part. Students at these secondary schools is now able to theoretically just just take one free exam and qualify to apply to Stanford.
Stanford received total 47,450 applications, its most ever, in terms of the course of 2022, together with University admitted 2,040 pupils. The acceptance that is resulting of 4.3 % may be the cheapest in Stanford’s history, down from 4.65 % for the course of 2021. Also, 18.3 % of Class of 2022 admits are first-generation students, the greatest percentage in Stanford’s history.
“This modification makes Stanford more available to pupils whom decide to connect with the college,” Miranda had written. “The essay/writing area could be a barrier to under-resourced candidates whom are not able to just simply just take that percentage of the SAT or ACT either as a result of the more expensive or because some states try not to offer a variation of those tests which includes that part.”
Though it additionally eliminated its ACT/SAT essay requirement, Princeton will now need all candidates to submit a graded writing test from twelfth grade. 続きを読む
