Which Test Should I Take?

Senior college presentation

  • You must also determine which test is required by the college / university you are applying to.

  • Certain college / universities require either/or the SAT Reasoning or ACT + Writing in addition to the two SAT Subject Tests.

Alternate paths

Alternate Paths

This is the time of the year when some applicants are disappointed they did not receive an offer of admission to the school of their choice.


Options

Options

  • Accept an offer to another college or university- each student’s campus experience is, to a large extend, what he/she chooses to make of it.

  • Take the transfer route – attending community college is an outstanding way to get general education classes taken care of, and by meeting the provisions of the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program, and admission to UC/CSU is an option.


Mit statement

MIT Statement

“… it might surprise you to know that we aren’t necessarily looking for a perfect SAT scores or prototypical rocket scientists. We don’t want one-dimensional students, just as we don’t believe in a one-dimensional education. In fact, it’s hard for us to describe the perfect MIT applicant other than to say they show a deep passion for what they love and aptitude to make the most of the opportunities they’ve had.”


University of chicago

University of Chicago

“… we look for bright students with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a passion for learning. Show us how you maximized your high school experience and pursued opportunities to develop unique talents. Tell us who you are – in your own voice – not what you think we want to hear.”
