#025 - This is a special and timely episode that will give you important information to help you manage your college admission path within the changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
You will understand how most college admissions departments are gearing up for the next academic year, the pressures that are guiding what they do, and the ways that can be used to give you an advantage.
We also discuss whether you should take the SAT, which has been made optional for admission into most colleges and universities. We talk about the importance of requesting a Professional Judgement Review to receive more financial aid, what to do after you receive an acceptance and before you commit to a school, and the two plans you should have for the fall of 2021.
Additionally, we will go over the most recent changes from The College Board, the disappearance of the Optional SAT Essay and the SAT Subject Tests.
These are the links I mentioned during this episode:
