Good Morning CC World!
December SAT scores were posted about an hour ago and she scored 1480! 750 EBR / 730 Math
Earlier this week her score of 1430 PSAT most likely earned her NM Commended recognition too, so she is having a great week!
My girl is a junior and turned 16 in late summer. She is interested in small liberal arts colleges and we do not anticipate qualifying for any financial aid, etc.
Any advice on 1) whether she should take the ACT and 2) why should she take the ACT would be so appreciated!
Is there some advantage regarding earning merit scholarships?
Would it make her application stronger with high scores on both exams?
Or would it just be annoying and too much information for the AO to keep track of?
Side note: (She took a practice ACT without ANY prep in early June last year and scored 35 / 35 / 30 math / 22 on science. AHHHH!!! :( Help! Any tips on that last score would be great too. The English teacher at her HS took her aside and told her that her score was scholarship worthy, but we have NO IDEA what that even means. What scholarship?
Any thoughts on the SAT essay would be valued too!
Thanks for any insights you are willing to share...we are in the Midwest and she is shooting for top tier, but not Ivies.
Happy Day! Happy Weekend!
Bring on Winter Break!
