Test Optional does not mean Test Blind

Now with the COVID-19 pandemic even Harvard University and Stanford University are Test Optional so why bother taking the SAT or the ACT; test scores will not play a major role in admissions! Well, sorry to tell you but this is a misconception. According to the article: "While test-optional policies create a new lane for students who struggle with standardized testing, these schools often still value strong testers who submit scores. Students who do not submit scores will be evaluated on the rest of their application, including grades and extracurricular involvement, but they lack the additional evidence that test scores can provide in a competitive admissions environment. In this environment, solid test scores may carry even more weight than usual. In other words, outstanding test scores remain an asset that many applicants will use to their advantage." We completely agree with this article. In this competitive environment, it is important for students to take them no matter if schools say that they are optional. So, register, study and take these exams!

College Counseling

Testimonials

I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
