How much do standardized test scores play into admission?
Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
HI Gary - We are test optional for SAT/ACT. If a student is happy with their scores and choose to submit them, we will use them as a portion of the overall review process. We evaluate all aspects of a file, from course selection and performance to letters of recommendation. Scores are just another area of consideration if a student submits them. Hope this helps!
