Best Test Scores
Gain Admission
& Tuition Discounts

Students with the highest scores 💯 go to the front of the line for admissions advantages and tuition discounts.

Most state colleges and universities base financial aid on test scores, using them to award grants, etc.

Fewer than 60 colleges are test blind — meaning they refuse to consider test scores for admissions and financial aid decisions.

Financial tip: Ask admissions officers to explain the precise metrics 📈 used to award merit aid and discounts. Is it test scores? Grades? Both?

Acceptance tip: If the college you're applying to has an acceptance rate of 35% or less, take the SAT or ACT even if the school is test-optional.
