    Follow this link and repost your question using “Reply to Topic” (DO NOT USE “New Topic”). I would recommend using fewer abbreviations in your post.

    Students apply to college the fall before the fall in which they would begin their studies at that college. The SAT I is an important part of the application. However, I don’t know if the scores from the October 9, 2004 SAT I will arrive early enough for you to apply in this fall’s application cycle. If they did and you applied now then you would not entire college until next fall (Fall 2005). If you are not in school now, you would benefit from taking community college courses because many if not all should transfer to the institution you would begin studies at in Fall 2005. The courses you would want to take would be semesterly courses (for instance, the fall semester would last from September until mid-Decembe).

    Only do community college if you can’t get in anywhere else or can’t afford to go anywhere else. Credits don’t transfer and the quality of the education sux.

    Forgot to mention that you hsould not attend a school that advertises with catchy jingles on TV.
