What schools are still pondering their admission test policies for subsequent application cycles?

We took a look at 135 schools to understand the roadmap for the next two years of application cycles. A small percentage of these schools have not yet confirmed their admission test policy as of this post for the 2022-2023 application cycle.

Although the data is still coming in, we so far see that while test-optional is a legitimate application type, submitting test scores is still a student's best bet for selective schools.

The chart below is interesting, as it showcases that after the 2023-2024 application cycle completes, 45% of our reviewed schools have policies set to either expire or continue as test-optional applications.

The class of 2025 will be the first class required to use the College Board's digital PSAT and SAT - wondering if the can will be kicked down the road in making a decision until that new test type is available?
