I never thought I’d need any test prep, since I always got top grades. But I soon learned that didn’t always translate to standardized tests. I really underperformed on my diagnostic SAT and SAT Subject Tests, partly because I was always overthinking things and then getting anxious when I wasn’t hitting my goals. My MAP tutors for the SAT and my SAT Subject Tests totally changed the way I approached these exams, and I quickly went from like a 70th percentile to 99% percentile in every exam. After getting their guidance with test prep, I knew I’d want to continue on with them for college essay and application help, and that made the admissions process so much less stressful (actually fun at times!). My admissions guide, who to this day is one of my favorite people in the world, put together an incredible application strategy and helped me write such compelling stories about my life that I never would have come up with on my own. I know that’s why I got accepted to all my top choices.
