If you feel that your SAT or ACT with writing scores are a good indicator of your abilities, you may submit them and they will be considered in your admissions decision. If, however, you do not feel that your scores accurately represent your academic abilities, you do not need to submit them until after you have been accepted and choose to enroll.
If you choose to submit your scores, score reports must be sent directly from the testing centers. To request scores be sent to Wake Forest, contact:
Wake Forest CEEB: 5885
Wake Forest Code: 3168
From the Blog
The issue of whether the SAT is useful in predicting college success — and the debate about making standardized tests optional for college admissions — continues to remain in the public consciousness. As one of the nation's bold leaders on the subject, Wake Forest is continuing the conversation with the Rethinking Admissions Blog, which shares the latest news, research and opinions. Join the conversation.
In April 2009, Wake Forest hosted top admissions officers and leading researchers from Berkeley, Duke, Harvard, Ohio State, Princeton, Texas, Virginia, Yale and other universities, along with the director of data research for U.S. News & World Report for a conference entitled "Rethinking Admissions." This conference provided a platform to discuss the latest research on standardized testing, diversity, creativity, college ratings and how to evaluate success in college.
