As a TA for Mrs. Dirkes, I spend a lot of time in the Career Center, so I wanted to see if anyone wanted some help researching a certain school they were looking to send an application to. I would be more than happy to help, so please comment below the school you are interested in and I will make a blog post about it.

COLLEGE APPLICATIOB WEBSITES:
Monday, October 7, 2013
The SAT or Act exams are very significant when applying to universities, but which test is best for you? Most colleges accept either exams although some colleges may prefer one over the other, which entirely depends on where you are applying to. The chart above compares both exams and will hopefully help you decide which exam is the best fit for you.
In addition, there is a tab at the top of the website that lists the dates of the exams and registration deadlines, so you can figure out which date to take either exam on.

First of all I would like to say welcome! My name is Maddie and I wanted to create a resource in which we as, students, can use to figure out college since the whole idea of college can be quite overwhelming at times. This website is for anyone, who is interested in college and is looking for some help in trying to figure out where they may want to go next fall. In addition, there will be scholarship information along with various other tips to help you with applications, financial aid, and just college in general!
