Princeton and Stanford are the “latest prominent schools” to drop the SAT/ACT essay requirement, Nick Anderson writes in a recent article for the Washington Post.
Stanford’s dean of admissions, Richard Shaw, stated that while the university has dropped the mandate, the submission of an essay score is still strongly recommended.
Meanwhile Princeton introduced a new policy, Anderson writes:
“All applicants must submit a graded writing sample from high school.”
Princeton recommends that this writing sample is taken from a class in English or history.
Brown University is now the last remaining Ivy League institution to require an SAT/ACT essay score, Anderson writes.
