I don't have a test score. Is it worth it to take the CLT?

Some schools I'm interested in will take the online CLT (Classic Learning Test). But we're only talking about three schools. Should I just apply without scores instead?

I'm not entirely sure, but I'd guess it depends on how competitive those three schools are and how high they are on your list of most desired schools. If they're super competitive and they're your top choices, it might be worth it, as long as you don't have to sacrifice things that are more important to you to prepare for them anyway. If your time is limited, and you'd have to sacrifice a SIGNIFICANT amount of time you could otherwise be devoting to projects, extra curriculars, etc. that you're really passionate about in order to study, those passions might be more worth your time both for personal reasons and for the sake of your applications.

So I'd say it depends on how much time you have before your applications are due, how much you care about those schools, and how competitive those schools are.
