With schools going test optional now due to Coronavirus, are they ACTUALLY test optional?
Are they simply saying test optional to put students at ease? Admissions offices say not submitting a score will not hurt your chances but is that really true?
Earn karma by helping others:
to paraphrase the previous answer:
submitting a good score will be beneficial to your application and colleges will most likely take that into consideration, but colleges can also determine your acceptance based off a lower score, but scores do have much less of an impact.
so i would say if you have a higher score that you are proud of, go ahead and submit it. but if your score is on the lower side, you have the opportunity to prevent colleges from seeing that weaker part of your app.
