Are Test Scores Destiny?

Decades ago, when I was applying to colleges, I had lopsided scores: near perfect verbal and let's not talk about math.

I got into a good school, but not the ones I wanted at the time. I am pretty sure my math score held me back. In retrospect, it seems to me my college took a chance. And I managed just fine in my classes. Do schools still take chances, or do students' scores really provide immediate boundaries in terms of which colleges might accept them?

Here's a list of colleges that do not use the SAT or ACT as primary elements in the admissions process.

While you may not have heard of many of the colleges, you'll also see some pleasant surprises.
