The short answer is we can’t. The two tests are very different a student who might have scored in the 95% on the old math section, might not even crack 85% on the new one, or vice versa.
Because so many students at the top universities have great ACT or SAT scores, I do recommend that students *consider* Subject Tests. You 8767 ll only want to worry about them if you think that they can improve your testing portfolio. In the case of elite schools like Columbia, that means 755+ (or at least 755+). You can try tests from the Official Guide published by College Board. Fewer schools than ever are requiring the Subject Tests especially with ACT scores. It would be a little challenging to fit them in (including preparing for them) as senior year starts and application season begins, so you may want to just sit tight with your ACT score.

Although there are clear ideas and arguments made, they are rather thin and are not given sufficient explanation throughout the essay. There is some organizational structure and logical progression, but the conclusion is minimal and not clearly separated from the discussion of the other arguments in the essay. Transitions are present but are minimal and simplistic.
This table gives the existing “old” SAT score ranges for these schools (the middle 55%), and we’ve converted them to new SAT score ranges so that if you are planning on submitting new SAT scores to colleges, you’ll have a sense of what you need to be aiming for.
My son took the SAT and got a 6555 785 reading/writing 775 Math, but his supplemental wring essay he didn 8767 t far well how much weight will rice University put with that
I would recommend looking at our college profiles with estimated new SAT score ranges. In general, you 8767 ll be competitive which is not the same thing as saying that you 8767 ll be admitted at colleges where your scores are closer to the 75th percentile than the 75th percentile. Students and parents often don 8767 t realize that the scores of admitted students are actually higher than the reported scores for enrolled students (we use the latter because not all college provide figures for admitted students). Keep in mind that test scores are only one part of your application. They tend to have a bit more weight for international students, because admission officers are not always as familiar with the curriculum and grading standards of other countries.
Also, I am looking at Northeastern 8767 s website, it said that it required SAT with writing, does that mean that Northeastern require the new SAT essay portion?

When a school says that the essay is optional, does that really mean it is not 8775 required 8776 but highly 8775 recommended 8776 . Because my son plays sports and they have 8775 optional 8776 workouts but really they aren 8767 t optional if you really want to make the team. They are required!!

The author uses a variety of words (marked in blue) and sentence structures to convey similar ideas in different ways throughout the essay. For instance, social media , man-on-the-ground (or man-on-the-spot ) reporting , citizen journalism , and amateur reporting are all different words and phrases used to describe the same phenomenon of non-professional foreign news correspondents.
Given your son 8767 s circumstances, I would submit both scores. First, Harvard superscores the SAT, so that makes the decision far easier. Even if the don 8767 t superscore the writing, your son would be no worse off. Second, neither of his non-essay scores is a concern, so it is not as if Harvard would see a score that would scare them off. While the difference between the 67 and 76 is minimal and is unlikely to impact your son 8767 s chances for admission, there is no reason for him to put his best scores forward.
Good questions. When we could not find a definitive answer on a school 8767 s website, we contacted the admissions office directly. Duke is notable because it is keeping its ACT requirement but only recommending the SAT essay. It has a convoluted rationale involving the Subject Tests.
