  • The essays are what made me stand out I’m a slow starter and tend to procrastinate, but my college consultant intervened. For the essay part of my applications, I was lost and would’ve been really lost if I hadn’t had essay coaching. More Than SAT helped me to pull off an essay that really showed my character and why I am the way I am and why I’ve done what I’ve done (my classes and activities). It explains a lot about me more than anything else on my resume, which I thought was lacking and didn’t show as much as other people could show. It wrapped up the resume well, and I really believe the essays are what made me stand out more than the other parts of my application.

  • My scores went up significantly in Science and Reading, and I was happy with the increase in my composite. I did get test-taking tips, but the main focus was actually learning skills—not just for the test but skills that I can use in my English and Math classes.

  • A game changer More Than Scores And Tests got my sons to be very organized in how they needed to plan for their college careers. In the ACT prep, my kids better understood their strengths and weaknesses. They would’ve really struggled without help on the written part of the applications. Even though I’m college educated, I couldn’t have helped much with all this. What colleges want today is so different. To have someone honed on prepping them for college admission was a game changer.

  • More Than Scores And Tests really reduced the stress of looking for a college and the process of applying. There’s so much involved these days. Working with them, we knew we weren’t missing anything and were taking all the right steps. There was no rush at the end of the process for my daughter. I really think the ACT training at More Than SAT is helpful for school in general. My son got extra help in all school subjects, especially English and Math. And he’s a bad test-taker but learned a lot of strategies from More Than SAT that he can take into his classes.

  • There was a long time between my SAT prep with More Than Scores And Tests and when I took the actual test. But everything I got from my academic coach stuck with me. I was very well prepared. I felt confident, and that helped me perform better. I ended up getting my highest score in Reading, which was always my worst subject. More Than SAT taught me strategies that helped me not only with the exam but also in AP English classes.

  • I struggled the most with the English section of the ACT, and after I got help from More Than Scores And Tests, that score went up 10 points! This raised my composite score. I got a 26 the first time I took the ACT and never expected to end up with a 33. One study skill that More Than Scores And Tests taught me is better reading comprehension. It helped me with the ACT and a lot of my classes. I also got help on my Common App Essay. I didn’t know where to start, but my writing coach at More Than Scores And Tests helped me brainstorm and bring together all my ideas into an essay I was really happy to submit to colleges.

  • I really want to thank More Than SAT for all the ways they helped me prepare for my standardized tests and college essays. But once I got to college, I realized how well they equipped me for what to expect from college. I feel like I am way ahead of my friends in going through the learning curve as a freshman in college.

  • I used more than SAT for ACT/SAT2 test prep and college consulting. The results were stunning. More than SAT approaches the process differently than other companies.  In terms of test prep my ACT score increased 7 points. More than SAT actually teaches you how to study effectively by yourself rather than giving you small tips and tricks that might increase your score a point or two. Next year I’m attending Stanford University, and I can honestly say that my admission was a direct result of the support I received from More than SAT.

  • Your guidance opened a door.  I knew my son’s grades and scores would not get him into a prestigious engineering school, yet I was still disappointed about him ending up at a small college we’d never heard of. But I want you to know that he has now qualified for WashU’s Dual Engineering Program with a scholarship, and will be starting his two years there this fall in their BioMed Engineering division. You provided him with this option that neither of us knew existed. Your guidance opened a door for him, and I want to thank you for all that you did.

  • I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!  Colorado State has been the adventure I was searching for. I especially appreciate the setting and the students: it’s close to Denver for concerts and the mountains for hiking and skiing, and the people are amazingly supportive and easygoing. Thank you, More Than S.A.T., for advising me to look at CSU, because I never would have considered applying here, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

  • Money well­ spent!  My college had just the right programs, a wonderful sense of community, and did a great job of preparing me for my career, but I hadn’t even considered applying there until my More Than S.A.T. consultant suggested it. I’m so grateful for the guidance I received and the help with applying for scholarships. Bottom line: The time we worked with More Than S.A.T. was money well­spent.

  • Freshman year was a cakewalk.  More Than S.A.T. helped me discover my potential in high school and advised me in finding a college that was just the right size and fit for me. I especially profited from their help with study habits, organizational skills, and time management. Freshman year was a cakewalk for me, and the entire college experience has truly been less stressful because I’ve been able to utilize what I learned from More Than S.A.T.

    Jonathan Student at Marquette University, graduate of Prospect H.S.
  • A world of difference.  More Than S.A.T. was an invaluable guide through the college application process.  The consultants advised me on recommended schools based on what I wanted and what I needed. I especially appreciated their help with the multiple essays I had to write.  It truly made a world of difference, and I can say that my school is the perfect fit for me!
