SAT and ACT Differences

SAT primarily measures aptitude in math, verbal and writing skills. Strengthening vocabulary is one example of a preparation strategy that will increase your SAT scores.

ACT focuses more on knowledge and is more of an achievement test.

ACT tends to be relatively easier to score higher on.

Since almost all colleges accept either standardized tests it is important to take both at least twice. Always remember that even if a particular test score, especially initially, are low, colleges look at the BEST score in their admission and school based scholarship decisions.

What Clients Are Saying

“…without your involvement, we never would have thought to approach the college directly…. We got the documentation together to obtain residency, created letters to send and were granted residency which translated to $20,000 in savings.

THEN we went back and said, 'don’t take away her out-of-state scholarship just because she is now a resident' and got OSU to maintain the $7,000 scholarship".

"We would like to express our appreciation for the service that our daughter received.

She is our first child to go through the college application process, and it was very intimidating for our whole family. You were able to create a clear, understandable path for our daughter.

As a result of all of this hard work, our daughter was offered three presidential scholarships at various colleges, including a full tuition scholarship to a private college.

Thanks again, and we look forward to working with you on our son's upcoming college search."

"HWS presented an above average financial aid award, however, it included some work study. With your guidance, I went back and asked that the work study be converted to either grant or scholarship to relieve the financial burden while allowing my daughter to focus on academics.

They came back with the conversion AND continued to keep her eligible for an equal amount of money through work study."
