This is so very helpful. Thank you. You mention lopsided scores. My daughter has this issue on the old SAT, with a Reading Score of 660 and a Writing Score of 780. Her math is also a 780. Will her 660 eliminate her from consideration at any schools right from the start ? Or are will they consider that she has a 2220 overall? Should she even bother with the new SAT (she did not like the ACT)? If it helps matters, she got a 720 EBRW/730 M on the PSAT. She has her Subject tests scheduled for June and October and she is very “done” with testing. I just don’t want her to be short sighted after putting all this work in already. Her extracurriculars are very strong, she has all 5s on her AP scores and she has a GPA. The 660 is the only “weak” part of her application.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you again.
Hundreds of Anti-Nazi chants shut down a speech at the University of Florida by white supremacist Richard Spencer last week. In response, the university's President W. Kent Fuchs used a word that is "seldom heard from a public college administrator" in stating that "Love and good deeds always overcome hate and evil." Fuchs, who received degrees in divinity and engineering took to Twitter with a video that urged students to "speak loudly about 'our values of love.'" In the days before Spencer gave his campus speech, students and faculty voiced their disapproval of hosting a speaker whose "presence posed a threat to safety and disrupted the university's educational mission." Following the speech however, Fuchs admitted that he “did feel that what Spencer was saying was actually the opposite of love...People of color and our Jewish community which is one of the largest in the nation, really felt hated by him. I felt it was important that I use the word [love]." [...] Community College Comp'd in California? October 17, 2017
