Make sure to check out our July Checklists for HS Juniors and HS Seniors. Consult these quick resources to get you started on the process this month.
GUEST STUDENT OF THE WEEK: ehales3 is a rising sophomore at Cornell University. As a high school student, she always thought that she wanted to study in a more urban environment, but has grown to love Ithaca and all that it offers. ASK HER ANYTHING!
As we work to adjust to the current reality, make sure to check out these dedicated COVID-19 resources: our directory of virtual campus tours, our directory of extended deadlines, as well as the list of schools going test optional this fall.

    Either match your SAT Reading and Writing score with your Math OR look at test optional schools

    @SeattleBulldog: Ballackliu said, "[...] going to talk about how i changed my life coming here, the hardship living in china..."
    So, obviously, colleges don't expect as much of him in English.
    Also @Ballackliu: When did you come to America?
    Also, your business has to be successful for it to actually look as a hook... yeah...
    I'll give you the story of a guy I know who got in NYU Stern in a PM, Ballack. :D
