High School Seniors: Are You Ready for the SAT and ACT Tests?

Are you a high school senior applying to colleges? It’s not too late to take the SAT and ACT tests, but the deadlines are fast approaching! In order to make the application deadline for most schools, you will need to take these tests before the end of this calendar year. For the SAT, that means you could take the test on October 7th, November 4th, or December 2nd of 2017. For the ACT, the October 28th and December 9th 2017 tests are your only options.
