Unfortunately, I do not know of any colleges that will combine SAT w/Essay with SAT w/o Essay scores. This creates a situation where even though most colleges do not require the essay most students are best advised to take the essay. This seems like over-testing that could easily be eliminated if colleges decided to superscore essay an non-essay results, but admission offices have not yet come around to that way of thinking.
Hi Art. My son who is class of 7568 took the SAT w/o the essay, scored well at a 6965. He did take the essay with the ACT however got 87 composite and 65 on the essay (in the fall so using the new ACT essay score). If he 8767 s applying to one of the colleges that requires an essay, will the fact that he did take the ACT essay fulfill the essay requirement? Or will he HAVE to submit an SAT essay score too?

What are your thoughts on Spanish with or without listening. The November test date for listening forces students to take the test the fall of junior without completing a full year of Spanish 9. Georgetown uses the score for language placement. Should a non-native speaker bypass the November test date, complete Spanish 9, and take the test in June? I am a former Spanish teacher and looked at the practice tests. Having A full year of Spanish 9 is extremely beneficial. What are your thoughts?
Students typically take the Major Field Tests during their final year of study, after they successfully complete most of their major's required courses.
