Whether you’re working with your school-based college counselor, an independent college admissions consultant, or both during your college admissions journey, there’s one thing that you can’t afford to do, and that’s miss opportunities to tap the knowledge and resources of the staff and teachers at your school.

If you’re preparing to apply to college, you’ve probably heard a lot about the SAT Subject Tests. These tests might be required by the colleges to which your applying, but they’re also a good way to demonstrate your mastery of a particular subject as it relates to your intended college major. While the thought of taking Subject Tests may be daunting for some, you can always improve your chances of performing your best by being well prepared and well informed as to what tests to take.
Families preparing for the college admissions process hear a lot about the ROI of a college degree. Which school gives you the most return on your investment? Which major will pay off the most immediately after graduation and the years after? What many families forget to consider, however, is why college matters outside of the measurable metrics.
