How many students apply and how many of those are accepted?
Generally, only transfer students and/or non-traditional students' requests to waive the standardized testing requirement are considered.
You must be able to prove you have had at least one year of college-level math and college-level English to apply for the waiver.
If you are not accepted under the Early Decision process, you may be reconsidered during the Regular Decision process.
Although most applicants are "rolled-over" into the regular decision pool, re-evaluation is not guaranteed.
