Admissions Advice

Chancing says significantly increased chances with SAT - but why?

I am applying to many schools where my SAT is much lower than their range (more than 100-150 points off) and College Vine Chancing is advising in every case that my chances are 'significantly' higher if I submit the scores vs. go test-optional.

Why would submitting test scores so much lower than average increase my chances vs. not submitting at all?

If the schools require a test score to be submitted, then you really need to submit it. Submitting it will increase your chances of being admitted if they want a test score regardless. Some schools are still not test-optional.
