  •  The ACT and SAT are scarier than they should be (0+ / 0-)

    Honestly, I wish they'd throw both tests out.  Everyone in academia knows that the tests are both horribly biased in favor of financially well-off students and school districts.

    That said, they're the only game in town, sadly, if you plan to head to a 4-year college or university.  Fortunately, there are a number of programs (don't read that as "enough programs") in place to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds enter college even if their SAT or ACT scores are less than stellar.

    You think it's hot? Imagine what it would be like if global warming really existed!
