Testing Calendar for Juniors - Class of 2022

Last Updated on Nov 12, 2020 9:30:00 AM

Although many selective colleges have temporarily gone test-optional because of the pandemic, test-optional doesn’t mean “test-blind.” Not only will test-optional colleges consider your scores if you submit them, but submitting competitive scores that are well into a college’s mid-50% range for admitted students has the potential to improve your admission chances. For students who don’t submit scores, colleges will place far more emphasis on other crucial admission factors, such as your academic record, extracurricular commitment, essays, and recommendations. So, if you’d like to improve your potential for admission, here’s our advice about your junior-year testing calendar. This means YOU, members of the class of 2022:

When Your GPA Still Doesn't Equal Your GPA

Last Updated on Sep 30, 2020 2:40:55 PM

In August of last year, our blog titled “When your GPA doesn't equal your GPA” discussed the varying ways in which colleges look at students’ grades – and the strength of the schedules that produced those grades – in making admissions decisions. In that blog, we noted that “When it comes to your GPA, the one that’s on your transcript is not necessarily the one that colleges will use!” That’s every bit as true now as it was then, and it’s also true, in spades, for the Florida State University System (SUS) schools that will be the focus of this blog.

We Went To Costco and Found the Tutor Shelves Empty!

Last Updated on Aug 28, 2020 10:15:25 AM

We Went To Costco’s Yesterday and Found the Tutor Shelves Empty!

We asked a Costco associate when tutors would be back in stock, and she said, “There’s no telling. They’re in short supply and get snatched up the second they hit the shelves,” reminding us of the run on toilet paper last spring and the magical disappearance of bottled water that occurs every time a hurricane is headed our way.
