I am wondering how to know for sure which colleges require SAT w/essay.

Some of the websites specifically say they want to see the SAT w/essay. But this one does not mention essay, just SAT scores. Does that mean essay is not required?

I would call and ask them directly. A school's Common Data Set also specifies whether or not they require the SAT/ACT Essay, but that info is usually a year old.

I looked at the Common Data Set, and for two of them it said essay required.  However, I took your advice and called the admissions office, and was told no essay required for either one.  So I'm doing the happy dance over here!  Yay!
