And what's really great is that quite a few colleges will accept the highest scores from each of your attempts.

you do the cp when you're in university
don't hold me to that i'm not too confident on it. although i found out that to do the cp from here you need to be at a specific university some on the list were oxford brookes, portsmouth, brighton, sheffield, cheshire and others

i'm in such conflict

do i do my undergraduate degree in the usa (will mean having to take the SAT as well as a levels but ((TOUCH WOOD)) i test well so it might not be too much)

do i do my undergraduate degree here and do a graduate degree in the usa (i dont even know if i want to do a graduate degree but i will avoid the SAT)

or

do my undergraduate degree here and study abroad in the usa for a year (again avoiding the SAT but then theres the potential that ill love it more than being here and ill hate university when i get home)

plus the school i want to go to costs around $50,000 a year plus books and travel and general lifestyle
which works out at around £30,000
but then again... university here is around the £10,000 mark now
plus when i come back it'll look good on my cv that i spent time abroad

I'm trying to put off taking the SAT but I've got to eventually since it's my junior year. Buy my whole grade had to take the ACT at school in march so you can use your ACT score when applying for colleges instead of your SAT score, whichever is better

Would they let you take the ACT? Cause it's a lot easier I mean the SAT isn't that awful but the ACT is less awful.

I took the SAT for the first time in May of my junior year and got a 1750. My mom was disappointed in my math score, so I took it again in December and my score only went up by 30 points.

lol.

But I got into all the colleges I applied to and my freshman year is covered completely by scholarships and grants, soooooooooo...

Wow sorry but this is cool... You cheer! I've never met anyone who cheers. I've always wanted to lol.

Totally be tinkerbelle except even with a southern accent I think Wendy or Alice would be easier ...!

umm yeah. All the time. I don't wear tons of makeup at all. I don't wear foundation but I wear eye makeup and occasionally lip gloss. Eye liner makes all the difference for me. I wear sparkly eyeshadow, but it's still natural colors.

omg
taking the SAT isn't really that bad, so i've heard. it's just draining and you feel like death afterwards. we take the PSAT in school, i've taken it twice and I've done really good both times and you can convert your score from the PSAT and see what you'd make on the SAT and the first time I got about a 1700 and the second time I got about a 1860, and the average score is 1500 so. Both of my best friends have taken it and done alright, but you can take it as many times as you want to get a score you desire.

I don't even think my school offers the SAT or anything like that. We do the ACT and I'll have to take that this year, but I never have done it voluntarily out of school. Honestly, my score on the ACT plan test showed that I didn't need to just yet. We take a writing assessment given by the state too. That's stupid but we do it anyways.
