A very useful website is www.fairtest.org. If you sign onto this website, you will see a long listing of schools, that are test optional. It seems as though everyday, the list of schools becomes longer and longer. There are many choices from top tier colleges on which are listed. It requires some patience to view and filter the list because of the length yet, the # of schools listed, tells us that students have many, many choices. Best of luck!
