    SAT/ACT Application questions

    Will super scoring hurt my application at all? My counselor recommended that I send in fewer tests to colleges, because admissions tend to look through all the scores of all the tests. I took the SAT once and my score was low. My ACT is much better and I prefer this test. Should I still work on...

    Subject test(s)

    Hi friends, Should I plan/prepare to take any SAT subject tests? Does USAFA take the scores into consideration and can these even be submitted anywhere through the process? If so, which ones are recommended to take? Thanks

    Weighted vs. Unweighted GPA

    I am a high school junior and I want to go to West Point, but I am concerned about my class rank and GPA. I attend a very rigorous New England boarding school, where 99% of students go on to attend a 4-year college and the average GPA (unweighted) is 87 for the entire school. My school both does...

    Summer Seminar: Send both SAT and PSAT scores?

    I scored pretty bad on the PSAT and got a 1200 (620 Reading 580 Math) then I did a little bit of prep on math and scored a 1300 (640 reading 660 math) on my SAT. Should I still send both scores as I improved by 100 points or would it be best to leave the PSAT out of the equation. Side note: I...

    Processing Time for SAT Scores?

    I took the August 24 SAT administration and the score send says "Fulfilled" as of 9/11/2019. However, when I logged into my USNA portal to check receipt on their end, it says "Not received." I'm sure that they will get to my scores eventually, but does anyone know how long it takes for USNA to...

    Should I take the SAT?

    My school doesn't make us take the SAT, only the ACT in the spring of our Junior year. Should I take the SAT or just focus on scoring well on the ACT? Thanks.

    Can strong academics and athletic leadership positions make up for a weaker CFA?

    My CFA scores are currently below average in a few categories, but they are still passing according to my counselor. I am wondering if strong academic scores (like a 1470 SAT, 3.8 GPA, 4.7 GPA weighted in all AP/IB classes), might be able to make up for weaker CFA scores in the overall WCS for...

    ACT or SAT

    Hi, I was wondering if the Air Force Academy either accepts the highest scores of either SAT or ACT. I got a low score on the ACT, but a high score on SAT which met the minimums. Will they take my SAT over the ACT?

    SAT Cartridge Tape?

    On my application to USMA, two of my scores were added on the same date but were taken on different days and are different scores. One of the scores says "Cartridge Tape" instead of Official. Does this mean my score is not valid?
