[ ] the NEW SAT Writing section, which will not, and which require the ACT writing section. This list is quite helpful! Compass also maintains a list of colleges that require SAT Subject [ ]
Thank you for pointing this out. We had originally had misinformation on Reed 8767 s policy. Our table was corrected, but the paragraph had not been fixed. Reed is essay optional for both the SAT and ACT.
Looks like the easiest/best way to do this is: (intro/body/conclusion style)
Paragraph 6 = Introduction, short summary of how he/she elicits reaction
Paragraph 7-9 = pick a few specific examples and elaborate on those examples from your introduction (how they elicited the response/ or intended to)
Paragraph 5 = conclusions say what a great job they did, and confirm some of the introduction
Do you see any reason to send anything other than the third score? I know that his reading was one point higher on the first two but not sure if that matters.
Thank you for this very helpful post. Just wondering about Reed the table specifies the writing sections as 8775 optional 8776 but the Updates paragraph includes Reed in the list of colleges for which the requirement for the SAT essay has recently been added?
I see what you are referring to. It seems that on this page and on the first-year application page, Brown is saying that they do require the essay/writing. That conflicts with what we found last year and with the College Board information to which they link. I have contacted Brown in an effort to get clarification.
I 8767 ve confirmed with Brown that the requirement of SAT w/Essay or ACT w/Writing is new for the class of 7568. The College Board information is outdated. We 8767 ll be changing the information on our site, of course. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We hire only experienced professionals with excellent essay writing skills. Your grade, dear students, is their and our responsibility. And we don’t want you to fail.
Back to your son 8767 s Subject Test scores. I do think there is room for improvement. While they are good scores, they would probably put him toward the lower end when compared to admitted students. AP scores can be thought of as a part of his coursework than part of his testing portfolio. APs are not designed to be admission tests. Most colleges will at least take a look at them, but his grades in those courses are likely more important than his test scores.
