My daughter just retook her SAT, so hopefully things will improve. Her math score was decent but her overall was 1340, so suddenly schools all seem to be reach vs. match. We are hoping her score improved, when she took the test my mother was critically ill and died, so she was grief strickened and jet lagged. After visiting a few schools she really wants to attend a LAC. She prefers Midwest or east coast. Her reach schools are Kenyon and Bowdain …she has 2 safeties that are true safeties. Open to suggestions for some match/low reach.
A bit about her:
Major neuroscience (also interested in bioethics)
Attends a well regarded school for the arts
Takes the most rigorous courses her school offers (only 5AP’s plus honors)
Pre professional ballet dancer at a big company school
NHS for dance arts
National youth arts finalist
Was selected for a very competitive STEM internship this summer
Teaches adaptive dance for kids with DS for the past 4 years
Hospital volunteer in a neurological institute
Plans to submit an art supplement video
Due to her SAT scores I am worried most schools she is interested in will pass on her due to test scores.
Suggestions/feedback appreciated. On a side note if her scored didn’t improve enough in the June test, any prep suggestions for August test?
