It’s an easy recommendation – take the college entrance exams and do the best you can! But to give some perspective on the expertise CAPlus can bring to the SAT/ACT table read this story…Lauren took the SAT exam and did average, it was not ‘her’ test. The score she received would not have earned her any merit scholarship money from her first choice school, University of Hope. At the insistence of Lauren’s CES (client education specialist), Lauren spent time studying, took review classes and sat for the ACT. By taking the ACT, and doing really well, Lauren’s score earned her a $14,000 scholarship at UofH! AND on the recommendation that she take the ACT again, her increased score earned her $2,000 more ~ another $8,000 more over four years. From her first SAT score to her final ACT score, she netted a difference of $72,000 over four years! That is approximately a $535 per month college loan! By CAPlus knowing where Lauren’s scores needed to fall to earn merit aid at her first choice school, and Lauren following the strategies of CAPlus, Lauren and her family saved time, stress and money. Going through the college process well-informed and educated about the true search process can be a huge money saver!
