SAT/ACT Score Concerns

The Challenge:

Kevin struggles with standardized tests. He has taken the test once and is below the average for a Service Academy applicant. He knows that he needs to maximize the other criteria used to determine the whole candidate score such as the fitness test, athletics and leadership.

The Approach:

West Point Admissions Consulting works with Kevin to maximize the other areas of the whole person score. We work with Kevin to retake the SAT or ACT to target increase the score given that the Academies superscore the test.

The Results:

After maximizing the other parts of his whole person score, Kevin concentrates on raising his SAT math score and jumps 100 points on his SAT math. Kevin receives an appointment to West Point.
