Boston University Eliminates SAT Subject Test Requirement

Posted by: Website Administrator on 3/7/2012

Anxious about the SAT Subject Tests?  Starting this fall, one less school will require those scores.

Kelly Walter, Assistant Vice President & Executive Director of Admissions at Boston University, announced this week that they will no longer require freshmen applicants to submit SAT Subject Test scores.  The only exceptions to this will be for students applying to the Accelerated Medical and Accelerated Dental Programs.  All freshmen applicants must still submit either the SAT or the ACT with Writing.

Boston University received a record-breaking 44,000 applications this year from across the nation and around the world.  They have also decreased their freshman class size to 3,900 students.  This means that admission to BU is more competitive than ever, but at least applying will be slightly less complicated.
