The SAT and The ACT
Not all, but most colleges require that students take standardized test scores to be considered for admission. To register for The SAT, please visit collegeboard.org. To register for the ACT, please visit actstudent.org.
Writing a Personal Statement
The personal statement is an important part of the admissions and scholarships application processes. Therefore, you should begin writing and proofreading during your junior year, asking for peers, teachers, and counselors to edit it as much as possible before you apply during your senior year.
