DePaul University has dropped a requirement that all undergraduate applicants submit either SAT or ACT scores -- and the university says that it is the largest private institution to have made such a shift. The university cited the positive experiences of many colleges and universities that have dropped testing requirements, the correlation between test scores and family income and other factors. Applicants who opt not to submit test scores will be asked to complete some short response essays.
