SATs

2 years, 4 months ago

Its about that time. Im looking to go back to school. Im not exactly sure what direction I want to go in yet,(its between music and/ or psychology of some sort.) which makes it a little difficult to really make that “first step” but Im thinking that no matter where I go, I need to have an SAT score. Am I correct?

Does anyone know of any good schools that dont require an SAT score?
If you know any information that can help me out, it is greatly appreciated ! :)

More schools require an ACT score. Definitely take the ACT, and once you start narrowing down your school choices, see if they require the SAT. I applied to two schools, and neither of them required an SAT score.

@yerhiighness, contrary to what was stated by my friend @longlivehedwig, in my neck of the woods (the southeast) the ACT was, in fact, the score that no school I applied to required. Most of them sought the SAT and it was my SAT score that I used to become an honors student at the University of Florida.

Regardless of the area you plan on applying to, having both of these will result in a guarantee that you have the materials required to apply for acceptance to the college of your choosing.

Taking the SAT is not that expensive and is honestly fairly easy to study for. From what I understand, the ACT can actually be the more difficult test to prepare for (I took both and qualified for honors with both way back when). My best advice is to take both of them and use the best one to put yourself forward.

Also, when I applied to UF, they allowed a mix-and-match approach, meaning that I could pair my highest scores of each section throughout every test I took (I took the SAT twice and they accepted my best scores in each of the 3 categories from both tests instead of looking at which test I did best on).
