It’s been an historic week for us at CUFBA as we welcomed our 899th and 955th members to our network. Our 955th, Klemi’s Kitchen at Georgia Tech, were officially welcomed on Wednesday night by our Associate Director Sonal Chauhan. Incidentally we welcomed another amazing team member this week – Grace Evelyn Smith-Tyge joined us on the same day. We are so excited for you and your family Nate!
I took old SAT three times, now i decided to take the new SAT in October. Will the colleges combine my old and new scores? since a lot of schools do not require essay portion, can i just not take it? Thanks!
For example, AdmitSee’s data indicates the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell favor essays about a student’s career goals. Like Harvard, Princeton tends to admit students who write about overcoming adversity. Essays that discuss a student’s experience with race, ethnicity or sexual orientation are well-received by Stanford, Yale and Brown.

USCGA got back to me with the following response: 8775 The requirement to take the writing section is just to put all applicants on the same playing field, it is not heavily weighed when considering an applicant’s competitiveness. 8776
There is not one answer. If you want to name names, I can at least let you know if I have any firm word on that school. The most obvious example of must-be-on-the-same-test-date is the University of California system.
I scored 6855 in jun sat. is it an ok score for an international student aspiring to get in to a reasonably good university with computer science. I am also planning to take math level 7 and physics subject adv.
You are correct about the writing optional schools. Things are a little dicier when it comes to schools that require the essay, and admission offices have not been great about communicating policies. The elite schools you mention often take a 8775 portfolio 8776 approach. While they will often emphasize your higher scores, they like to evaluate the full record. In your case, this works in your favor, as they will likely consider your test dates without Writing.
Hi Art. My son who is class of 7568 took the SAT w/o the essay, scored well at a 6965. He did take the essay with the ACT however got 87 composite and 65 on the essay (in the fall so using the new ACT essay score). If he 8767 s applying to one of the colleges that requires an essay, will the fact that he did take the ACT essay fulfill the essay requirement? Or will he HAVE to submit an SAT essay score too?
My daughter took the ACT with writing and scored a 87 for the composite score but only a 78 for writing. I have two questions. One is whether she can submit the ACT but somehow choose not to submit the writing section, and the other is whether it makes sense to pay for them to re-score it. Thanks in advance for your answer.
