SAT/ACT and Subject Tests
JUNIORS: Determine if the schools you are applying to require Subject Tests. Subject Tests are taken on the same day as SAT testing but might not be offered at each scheduled SAT test. Therefore, you must check College Board for accurate information. You may take up to three Subject Tests at one time. You must take Math 2 if you are considering any major in the math or science areas. Biology, Chemistry and US History are a few of the other Subject Tests available.
Early Decision vs. Early Action Early Decision is binding. It means that a student who is accepted as an Early Decision applicant is contractually obligated to attend that school. You can only apply to college for an Early Decision. Students will receive an early response of acceptance or rejection between November and end of December.
Early Action is non-binding. You can apply to as many Early Action colleges and universities as you would like. The deadlines for an Early Action application vary but are usually in November. Most applicants will hear by the end of December but may wait to commit until the normal deadline in the Spring.
Discuss the pros and cons with us and decide if early application options are right for you. It is important to note that many merit based scholarships are tied to Early Action Applications.
Merit Based Scholarships
For the Class of 2017, many merit based scholarship deadlines will be in October and November of your senior year. If you are applying for Honor Scholarships, they often coincide with the Early Action Deadlines. It is important to be aware of each scholarship deadline at the schools you are interested in, as well as the scholarships within your intended major and department.
