ACT and SAT scores no longer required for admissions at some colleges

A growing number of U.S. colleges and universities are abandoning ACT and SAT scores as part of their admissions process. The so-called test-blind movement has gathered steam this year amid widespread cancellations of the standardized tests because of COVID-19.

Schools from California to Massachusetts say the tests do not accurately predict students' academic success.

The colleges that are getting reopening right

While many bigger universities in cities decided to start off with remote learning, smaller campuses in smaller towns — like Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont — welcomed students with negative test results back, betting that the relative isolation could keep infections at bay.

Some colleges have seemingly cracked the code.

Opinion | The Coronavirus May Change College Admissions Forever

In the context of a pandemic that has killed about 190,000 Americans and economically devastated many millions more, getting into the college of your dreams is a boutique concern. But for many teenagers who have organized their school years around that goal, it’s everything.

And it’s going to be different this admission season. It may well be different forevermore.

A pandemic returns the focus to what matters: education.

Fauci discusses how college campuses can safely open during the pandemic

“They got to have the capability of doing the testing to begin with. They got to have the capability of doing surveillance testing, as you get into the school year, and they have to have a plan of how they handle the inevitability of some students who are going to wind up getting affected” Fauci said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases, laid out how colleges and universities should successfully open, and the conditions that he feels would be necessary for sending his own children onto a college campus, in a phone interview with CNN.

Colleges with coronavirus outbreaks should keep students on campus, experts say

The consensus among health experts is that it’s easier to isolate sick or exposed students and trace their contacts if they stay put. Sending students home risks exposing other people there as well as along the way, and makes contact tracing all but impossible.

Colleges should isolate students and contain coronavirus outbreaks on campus should they arise, rather than send them home where the virus can spread, according to public health experts.

But what if we flipped the question? Instead of lamenting “why now?”, what if we asked, “now, why?” Though difficult, and tragic for many families, the disruption of this crisis invites us all to pause and reflect in some manner.

Instead of looking at the past, or to the future, what if we acknowledged the now and took time for the why?

Stop Judging College Kids: None of Us Have Ever Done This Before

If your teen is starting off their college experience in 2020, I genuinely feel for you. This “back to school” process has been painful. You have every right to be feeling all of the emotions that you’ve been feeling.

What makes me sad is watching the judgment that has already begun as kids move back to campus.

Opinion: UNC fiasco reveals truth about reopening colleges

In the wake of the UNC fiasco, we have to reckon with the price of failure. Students at Chapel Hill are going home now and they are taking their viral load with them. As a result, to be blunt, more people are going to die.

The reopening of on-campus life then near-immediate closure after a surge in Covid-19 at UNC-Chapel Hill -- along with outbreaks and quarantines at other big schools -- are just the first wave, says David M. Perry, but they seem to indicate the worst is yet to come.
