​The next SAT administration is November 8. For current seniors, that is the final opportunity to take the SAT before most applications are due. 

The next ACT is December 13. 

Parents: looking for a way to motivate your reluctant student? Check this out...Merit $$ is often tied to standardized test performance. One student scored a 1300 (out of 1600) and was offered $20,000 merit aid by one school. When he retook the SAT and scored a 1340, he was offered $34,200! Higher test scores CAN result in better financial aid offers!


"Our only regret is that we didn't know about Competitive Edge three years ago when we went through the application process with our older child." -Sol B., parent, Long Beach

"Amy is AMAZING!! Always upbeat! She made both my daughter and me feel relaxed and confident throughout the stressful process of college choice and applications.  The best money we ever spent!"

There are many components to a college application?

The application itself is just ONE PART of the information most colleges require. Even if a student submits the application by the deadline, a file can be considered incomplete if ALL the parts aren't received by the college by the deadline!
Some of these parts MAY  include:

Letter(s) of Recommendation


Test Scores


Supplemental Essays

It's important that applicants know exactly what each school requires for a "complete" application.
