I need advice

<p>I am planning to applynext year…I would like to apply to Wharton…Des anyone think I would have a better chance applying to the college then Wharton…I know I will try as hard as I can to get good SAT and SAT2 but I feel that I may not be able to make a good score and so it worries me that I will not get into the school. any advice</p>

<p>Wharton's more difficult to get accepted to but if you have the scores and you want to be in business, that's the way to go. If you're applying next year, start taking your SATs in January so you can see how you do. Then, if you need to, you can study/get a tutor over the summer and raise your score. In any case, you'll never know how you'll do on the SATs until you take them so try them before worrying about admission. Good luck!</p>

<p>see, Re en Kam just casually told excel to get a tutor for the SATs. what he (or she, whatever) fails to realize is that tutors can cost like $5000. some people can afford that.</p>

<p>Someone doesn't have to get a tutor. I know a lot of people can't afford them (I definitely can't and never have). I mean for excel to get some SAT study books and things like that. Any, if he/she is really serious about this and has the money to spare, a tutor could be a good idea. I know people who hired unprofessional tutors (i.e. college students) that scored high on SATs and their scores went up substantially.</p>

<p>tutors dont cost $5000. my tutor raised my score over 150 points and was around $80/hr for 8 hours.</p>

<p>plus if you cant afford that, many groups/communities have free tutors at local teen centers.</p>

<p>i've never done any tutoring, but my little sister has an SSAT (not even SAT) tutor that costs $300/hr. i think that's just insane.</p>

<p>That is insane.. that's almost a scam. Real teachers make about 1/6 as much, even less if you count the time they spend grading (my AP Bio teacher said she calculated that she earns like $6.00 an hour because she spends so much time making tests and grading them).</p>
