The SAT redesign announced in 2014 had us here at On Campus wondering about the "test optional" and "test flexible" trend emerging in higher education. More schools are dropping tests like the SAT and ACT as an application requirement, relying instead on GPA. Just how widespread is this trend? According to Fairtest.org, a standardized testing watchdog, more than 800 universities or colleges no longer require either test. 

Here's a complete, updated list of schools in Massachusetts that don't require scores:
