Good Luck on the April 12th ACT!

By April 10, 2014

Follow me on:

Best wishes to the thousands of students taking the ACT on Saturday, April 12th. Scores from the exam will be available online on Monday, April 28th. If you're worried about the ACT, keep in mind that at many colleges a strong academic record, glowing letters of recommendation, a winning essay, and interesting extracurricular activities can help make up for a sub-par score.

Also keep in mind that about 850 colleges are now test-optional. The test-optional schools include some excellent choices: Bowdoin, Holy Cross, DePaul, Pitzer, Wake Forest, and many others.

I am really really angry right now. I worked my tail off for four years of High School. I had a 3.9 GPA and a ACT 26 and SAT 1670. I was wait listed at Binghampton, as well as several other Univeristies (Did end up at Binghampton). One of my friends had a 2.7 GPA, was a fragin alcoholic and a little bit of a jerkoff. He went to a Community college and took 16 credits a semester. And believe me my sister went to the same CC and said you could get a’s for just showing up. My friend had a 3.2 Average after 32 Credits, applied to Binghampton and not only got in but got into his program. I got into the same program but only after pulling a 3.8 GPA in my Liberal Arts courses. HOW IS THIS FAIR…Why did I destroy my teenage years and have panic attacks, when I could have puuled the same game as this kid!! This sucks! Plus I bet you my left nut that he fails out within two years.. He is a big big partier. I know some of the Private schools still look at High School for transfers, but what the …is up with SUNY!!
