Did You Know?
Imagine only sending your best SAT scores to colleges and deleting the rest. Well, you can! Since March 2009 the College Board has offered Score Choice. You can choose one SAT sitting to send to colleges, and hide the rest. This also applies to SAT II Subject tests. Needless to say, college admissions officers have mixed feelings about the program. Some agree that it will take some pressure off high school students, while others will still demand that applicants submit all of their SAT or ACT scores. To read more click here.
"The easiest decision I made during the college admissions process was hiring College Search Navigators. I could not imagine having to go through this process alone. During the school year, I had a very busy schedule. They worked with me all Spring and Summer to free up my Fall. Thanks to College Search Navigators, my journey to college was a smooth and successful one! "Tom B., Class of 2014,
