While historically the ACT was the less popular and prestigious admissions test, it is now accepted by all 4-year colleges and universities in the country.
We know this might be different from what you’ve heard, but in 2022 the ACT is just as highly regarded as the SAT. We have had students with top ACT scores receive acceptances from Ivy League colleges like UPenn, Cornell, and Harvard, as well as colleges like Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, and more.
In order to determine whether the SAT or ACT is a better primary test to focus on, we strongly encourage that every student we work with takes a full-length SAT and ACT diagnostic at the start of his or her program. We offer these proctored mock tests free of charge for our students at our offices in Wayne, PA or at home.
