  1. Hi! I wanted to let you know that I will be in the Center on Friday , taking the ACT. I wanted to ask you if you maybe have some time to kill after I'm done with the ACT. I would love for you to look over my school list and my common app essay and give me some feedback, and discuss something I would like to ask you about Vanderbilt :) 

    Please let me know soon! 

    See you on Friday (Hopefully)

      My SAT Subject test scores came back.

      Math 1: 700

      Literature: 630

      Now, Im completely fine with my scores but I wanted to ask you if I should send them to schools, even though it might be below their range? Or is it counterproductive to send them if they are not nearly perfect?

      This is a tough question, Maksim. There are several points that you need to consider.  First the foundation of the U.S. higher ed application system is the consideration of the entire person.  While your subject test scores may not be sterling - the scores do indicate that you are quite knowledgeable in these areas. 

      That said, you also must consider the schools you are applying to and consider what the applicant pool looks like overall.  

      Honestly, I do not think that your subject test scores would rule you out - it is rarely a signal reason that rules you out or gets you in.  Your subject tests are one part of your story.
