So you took the ACT! Now what?

SAT

June 2004

One of the biggest dilemmas facing many members of the high school class of 2006 is determining the version of the SAT I for which they should prepare. (Other members of this high school class will have to decide if they wish to sit for the 30-minute ACT Writing Test that will become an optional component on February 12, 2005.)

Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Cornell are amongst the Ivy League schools that will be accepting both versions of these tests. Princeton strongly prefers the new SAT but will accept the old version if it is “impossible” for the student to sit for the new SAT. Penn, and Brown have not yet decided on a standardized testing policy. Dartmouth has not made a decision either but is leaning towards only accepting the new tests.
