How important is the SAT?

Posted on Oct 3, 2008 12:00:00 AM

A recent poll of 500 universities revealed the following significant data:

  • 72% of colleges said that a student’s scores are more important than the extracurricular activities
  • 38% of colleges indicated that the Writing score is used to make admission decisions, with almost half of these colleges reporting that the Writing score is as important as the Reading and Math scores
  • Among the top 50 colleges polled, 35% indicated that the Writing score is weighted exactly the same as the Reading and Math scores

The same poll also indicated that more than ¼ of the colleges are receiving more and more applications from homeschoolers.

The poll was conducted by Kaplan Test Prep & Admissions
