A good way to get a sense of your SAT score goals is to generate a list of schools you’re interested in and then research score statistics for each. Along the way, many students wonder about the same question: what SAT scores would I need to get into an Ivy League school? We did the research so you wouldn’t have to. Read on for more.
Knowledge Is Power
No matter what test you’re preparing for, the first step in any successful prep program is understanding the rules of the game. Or, as a wise man (Kendrick Lamar? Pretty sure it was Kendrick) once said, “Know your enemy.”

A good way to start figuring that out is to generate a list of schools you’re interested in and then research score statistics for each.

Enough time has passed since the beginning of the COVID pandemic that a new wave of students is making plans to prepare for and take the ACT or SAT. In this post, I’ll lay out some of the main messages that I’ve been giving to my students over the past year – sort of a ‘2021 COVID Testing Primer’. Let’s get started.
Scoring on the ACT is a topic that’s both complicated and extremely important (which is why this is my third blog post that covers it). Understanding how ACT scoring charts work and why they differ from test to test can help you approach test day with fully open eyes, so let’s take a look.
Despite the hopes of many, all of the world’s problems were not immediately solved when the calendar flipped from 2020 to 2021.

You can be as prepared for the ACT as you want, but none of it will matter if you don’t show up at the test center on the right day.
