    Below is a list of colleges and universities that are test-optional. That means that’s you’re not required to submit your ACT or SAT scores if you think they might actually negatively affect the rest of your application. That said, if you have good scores, it’s probably a good idea to submit them. Make sure you read all the directions on each individual college application because they will all have different criteria. So talk to you guidance counselor before you make a final decision.

    Why are certain schools open to looking past the ACT or SAT? Well, some just don’t see the relevance. For example, an art or technical school might not see the SAT or ACT as a proper measurement for whether you’d succeed in their programs. Other schools understand that the exams give an unfair advantage to students from schools or families who can afford steep test prep sessions and the opportunity to take the exams multiple times until they reach their desired grades. And some schools simply understand the an exam is not the measure of a person.

    So if you’re not completely happy with your score, or if you haven’t taken either exam and simply need to get your applications in before the deadline, take a look at these test-optional schools and see if you’re a match!

    It's probably going to be a for-profit college, which unfortunately usually costs more. I would check out De-Vry or ITT Tech. These schools have been around for a long time. I would avoid Phoenix, Capella, and the other johnny-come-latley schools.

    Yourbest bet, of course, for a top-notch education would be a well-established public or private institution.

    The problem with the for-profit schools, is that they typically offer a more remedial education. This is because they resemble the correspondence schools that were once wide spread a few decades back. Such schools had few if any entrance requirements other than a high school diploma. Since they offered education to anyone, regardless of their level of intellect, they had to make the material less advanced in content, so it would be more easily understood. Still, such education as this isn't without value. The drawback to attending in-residence universities is that they often have a large number of unnecessary prerequisites, often unrelated to the course of study, that the student must complete before they can graduate.

    LSU is nice, but it's in Louisiana. You only need like a 22--20 in the math--and they'll let you right in.
