Video: Big changes to the SAT test, including making the essay portion optional, are creating a buzz online. Tweet us your opinion on the changes with the hashtag #OrangeRoom.

The College Board announced on Wednesday that it would be dropping the essay portion of the SAT, and returning to the 1600-point format.
