Acceptance to selective colleges now requires stronger academic credentials than ever before. This is partially due to a larger applicant pool than in previous generations, and can also be attributed to grade inflation trends at the high school level. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 69% of high school graduates (2 million out of 2.9 million) immediately enroll in a postsecondary degree program each year, and the average high school GPA is now 3.0. Universities can afford to be much more selective when screening applicants, and this selectivity is shown by substantial increases in average SAT scores. For first-year students at Cornell University, average SAT scores have gone up by 30 points on each section since 1999, with 75% of accepted students now scoring above 650 on critical reading and above 680 on math. At the University of Michigan, SAT score inflation is even more pronounced. In 2000, middle 50% SAT scores were 570-670 verbal and 610-710 math. Fifteen years later, middle 50% scores had grown to 630-730 critical reading, 660-770 math, and 640-730 writing.
Though it is more difficult to get accepted to a top school, the good news is that high SAT scores are extremely helpful. The University of California Santa Cruz, for example, reports a 54% admit rate for applicants with SAT scores of 1800 or better, but just 8.5% for SAT scores under 1500 (both are on the 2400-point scale). High SAT scores are well within the realm of possibility for students who secure the right instruction and are willing to make the effort. Manhattan Review's SAT prep services in Cambridge are taught by highly qualified educators using innovative instructional methodologies and top-quality course materials. Manhattan Review students learn how to master the content of each SAT section, how to use test-taking approaches that maximize time efficiency, and how to improve retention of material through optimal use of study time, and they also receive confidence-building assessment and feedback.
SAT Private Tutoring
Funny, made things clear and related things to real life. The SAT / ACT course was very helpful, I don’t think I would’ve improved my reading skills without it. This course also gave me strategies to break down a reading. I got a feel for the SAT and had practice in areas I struggled in.
