    Columbia University has permanently dropped its SAT and ACT
    standardized test requirements for undergraduate admissions.


    "We have designed our application to afford the greatest possible
    opportunity and flexibility for students to represent themselves fully
    and showcase their academic talents, interests and goals. Standardized
    testing is not a required component of our application," the school
    wrote in the announcement.

    "Our review is purposeful and nuanced—respecting varied backgrounds,
    voices and experiences—in order to best determine an applicant’s suitability for admission and ability to thrive in our curriculum and
    our community, and to advance access to our educational opportunities,"
