    Is it more important that I do well on the AP tests or the SAT or ACT tests?

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    Ideally, you would do well on both the AP test that you take and then either the SAT or ACT test. The admissions committees will look at all of these scores and they use them to judge slightly different applicant characteristics.

    Please don’t hesitate to call us at 1.800.809.0800 if you want to discuss any of this in more detail.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Do any schools have a preference between the ACT and the SAT?

    Do any schools have a preference between the ACT and the SAT?

    Hi Gillan and thanks for your inquiry.

    The schools do not have a preference between these two tests. Prepare your best for the test you feel you can achieve the highest percentile score. If you feel your diagnostic scores are similar for both tests, then prepare for the test that you feel will present the least difficulty. Be forewarned, however, these tests are not as different as they used to be.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    My daughter has been recruited by a college coach but were worried with the admissions scandal that the coach may be gone soon. Should she still get into that school if the college coach gets indicted?

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    First of all, we’re very sorry to hear about your daughter’s predicament. If it’s any consolation, there are many other innocents suffering from this scandal fallout too.

    To address your question, a verbal offer will not be binding if a new coach is hired. If, however, your daughter already signed her National Letter of Intent, she has the scholarship for at least the next year. (The new coach doesn’t have to keep her on an athletic scholarship.)

    If your daughter is not yet a senior, we would encourage her to continue looking at colleges and talking to coaches to gauge interest. If the coach is fired for any type of misconduct, then perhaps it’s for the best that she play for someone else with more integrity.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    My son is wrapping up his junior year. We need to choose between taking the ACT and SAT. What do you recommend? He is stronger in math than in English.

    Hi Ammon and thanks for your inquiry.

    I would encourage your son to take an official practice test for the ACT and SAT. (See links below.)

    The ACT link: http://www.act.org/content/dam/act/unsecured/documents/Preparing-for-the-ACT.pdf
    The SAT link: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/practice/full-length-practice-tests

    Grade the tests and see what percentile he would be starting at for each. If the percentiles are similar, see which one feels more comfortable to him.

    Best of luck with your son’s future applications!
