SAT and ACT Info
Happy Passover and Happy Easter to all of our friends who celebrate!
There was joy; there were tears. Our clients were admitted to some amazing colleges this year – Columbia, Cornell, NYU, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Michigan, UCLA, UC Berkeley. We also celebrate our clients who had previously been admitted to other great schools: University of Oregon, University of Puget Sound, Willamette, University of Texas, University of Colorado – Boulder, and so many more.
There were rejections too; few students are admitted everywhere they apply. But for those students who worked with us for a year – or more – the pain of rejection or the frustration of being wait-listed were tempered with acceptances from schools they had researched and know are a good fit for them. As happens every year, we received a few calls and e-mails from parents of students we didn’t work with, “heartbroken” or “devastated” by college decisions. The college admission process can be brutal to both students’ and parents’ egos. How you approach it can make all the difference.
Juniors have just watched their senior friends open their acceptance and rejection letters. They should be exploring colleges now and should have a plan for taking the SAT or ACT – or should have taken it already! Junior parents – please give us a call if you’d like to have a personal consultation with one of Magellan’s counselors. Early and organized means less stress for your entire household in the long run!
The current Sophomore class is special because of a major change in the SAT next March – the spring of their junior year. As long as you have a plan, all will be fine! Parents – feel free to get in touch if you’d like to talk about a customized standardized testing timeline for your 10th grader.
