Each week, we share useful tips and/or our thoughts about high school students' dilemmas when applying to college. We use our experience to foresee what might happen. On our team, we have parents of children who have gone through this process, so we are well aware of the pressure for a student to obtain a high score. And for a parent to support a child throughout the process. The EA Team suggests that you visit fairtest.org to see the list of schools that are no longer interested in an ACT or SAT score. Find one or two on that list that you would like to attend because knowing that you are interested in a school that doesn’t care about a score greatly produces the pressure to get a score. Now, you want to take the test so that your options about colleges remain large and the score can get you a scholarship but relax, you will definitely find a school that you like on the Test-Optional list. Worried that there aren’t any prestigious schools on the list? Harvard, Brown, and Dartmouth are there just to name three.
This week EA begins its six-week test program for the upcoming SAT, which will be on March 2. In just six weeks, we can prepare your child for that exam. Not ready to take the exam, give us a call for the May and June SAT. And don’t forget, we prepare students for the ACT, too. The ACT will be offered on April 2, June 11, and July 16.
