Why do the SAT and ACT Matter?

“Why should I study for the SAT and ACT?” Students often ask. The average student spends 4,400 hrs. in high school. Four thousand four hundred hours! All working towards a GPA. The SAT takes 4 hrs. And most universities weigh the two almost evenly!!! So work smarter, not harder. Is it more productive to spend 4 hours cramming for that Biology test, or to spend those same 4 hours prepping for the SAT/ACT, and improve your score an extra 100-200 points? What’s going to do more to get your into your dream school? – Submitted by Ryan Fitzgibbons
