Planning and Preparing For College Admission
Getting accepted to a good college is becoming more and more competitive each year. If you are not properly prepared, you will not be able to compete with the thousands of other applicants who are prepared! Many students and parents think that if you have a good SAT or ACT score, regardless of what courses you took or what activities you were involved in, you will get accepted to most schools.
