Hi! I am applying for Pitts Honors Program. I have a 4.7 GPA, but I have a 1350 SAT. While this is the average for Pitts, it is very low for Pitts Honors. Do you think I should go test optional so I have a chance for Honors? But, I also don’t want to not get accepted to Pitt itself because they think I have a score worst than I do. Please feel free to respond if other people already did. I want to hear opinions. Thank you!!
I recommend applying test-optional. It is only worth submitting a test score if it is above average for the general program, and especially for an honors program. Not submitting a test score will not harm your application - it essentially gives you +0 points rather than -1 or +1 points. Hope this helps!
