He happens to have an index that is slightly below typical cutoff scores for the past few years. But he gets one more chance on the SAT, in about 6 weeks. He scored around 1050 (math+verbal) I think, so he has some room for improvement. Even a boost of 100 points could make the difference between acceptance and rejection.
I noticed that Ivy Tutor has a 6-week SAT class about to start. Has anyone had any experience with this company, or with SAT tutoring in general? I'm thinking that he probably can't learn a lot of math or English in 6 weeks, but perhaps he could learn test-taking techniques if he had the right sort of coaching.
One more week to vote!
