A list of 800 test-optional schools recently released by the National Center for Fair and Open Testing suggests that it's possible to apply for college without test scores -- but that suggestion is misleading, Kathryn Juric writes in this opinion piece. Students need to be aware of several things about the list, Juric explains, such as the fact that most of the schools on it do not offer a traditional four-year education and many are "test-flexible," meaning they still ask for test scores but let students choose from a broader variety of standardized tests.
