Wondering if because schools get ALL requests for their school, do they get the info that the student has ranked the school first?

Only Bard have a school specific test

Schools do not know how you rank them. And yes, correct, normally Bard is the only school that requires an assessment at the high school admissions level.

Sorry I missed how you know what the cut off scores are

You don't know... you can only look at what they were the last two years and made an educated guess.

If your child is currently in the Bee Tutoring "bridge" SHSAT prep and is doing fairly well, how much more of these other "prep" ideas should we adopt?

Two-part question: 1) how many students from CS last year didn’t get a placement at one of their choices, and 2) what advice can you give us from this? Thanks!

Given the different decision windows across private, catholic, and public schools… do you recommend seeing what happens with public first if you prefer public school, or going for all now and just deciding whether to put a deposit down as a safety in case public doesn’t work out or give notice until may/june

Hi Kelly! The timing is tricky with the public / private / catholic decision timeline. You will likely need to put money down at a private and / or catholic school before you know your public options. Be careful of private schools that will require you to sign a contract early that puts you on the hook for a whole year's tuition.

You CAN sometimes find a spot in a private or catholic school in the summer, but then there is no aid available.

One more: the downloadable 7th grade report card from my student has MT for everything instead of grades. Is there a way to get a more official one with grades vs. screenshot?
Nikki Jennino

I was under the impression that the digital portfolio that the students do each year can and should be used for HS admissions...am I wrong?
