      Thanks for replying! What school? do you need test requirements for?

      When it comes to recommendation letters, it’s really important that you have those teachers and/or counselors who you have built strong relationships with write those letters. This really gives admissions reps good insight on who you are as a person and student from the perspective of the people who have worked closely with you over the years.

      Great! Thanks for commenting. Try to use your phone to make note of important deadlines. Apple and Android both have calendar apps that allow you to keep track of deadlines and events. If you don’t have access to a phone, we have a personal planner that we can get to you.

      If you still need help with any essays, please let us know.

    I applied to many colleges and got accepted to most schools but haven’t heard back from all my colleges yet ! I learned to call and check up with the schools on my acceptance letters or what not.

      Great! Thanks for replying. The next test date is March 10th, and the deadline to register is February 9th. Let us know if you need assistance registering for the test. Also, don’t forget that you can practice on Khan Academy as well.
