How much do test scores matter, if at all?
My son is a HS junior and hoping to pursue jazz studies (saxophone) in college. His grades are good, 3.75 GPA. But he just got his ACT scores back and they're pretty mediocre. He'll take them again and while they may go up some, I'm not expecting him to be one of those with scores in the 30's. His jazz playing credentials are good, with lots of combo experience. So, for schools like University of Michigan, Northwestern, etc. that have high test score expectations for their incoming freshmen, how much will his low score affect his acceptance? Is there some leeway given for music school applicants?10 replies
