My DD would like to ED at her school of 1st interest if she gets some sort of support from the athletic coach. She recently visited the school and met with the coach and spent the night on campus. The coach had indicated that it would be good for her to retake her SAT and bump one section up a little. She has a perfect score in the other two sections. Now my daughter is retaking the SAT. With everything going on in senior year she is worried she may not better her score. She will be cutting it too close to the ED deadline. Her other choices are EA schools that are restrictive. She will go to school 1 if they accept her. Should she just have a frank conversation with the coach there?
