Ask Your Own Independent College Counselor: ACT or SAT?

Should I take the ACT or the SAT?

Most colleges and universities here in San Diego and across the U.S. accept both the ACT and SAT tests as criteria for admission. But there are subtle differences between the two, especially if you’re considering a career in math and science fields.

Part of our ACT and SAT test prep is advising you about which test to take, based on your academic goals and what is required by the schools you’re applying to (or might apply to). Our ACT and SAT tutors have college-bound consulting experience with hundreds of students from different backgrounds who have pursued varying career paths, so our instructors can answer any questions you have. We also have college counselors who can manage the entire application and admission process for you.
