Rock the tests! (aka: “grades matter!”)

201504_2255_dcgdd_smYou hear it all the time.

You’re probably sick of it.

Too bad.

GRADES MATTER!
GRADES MATTER!
GRADES MATTER!

Know what else matters?

TEST SCORES.

You can make yourself look even better to a college coach with a good GPA and a good test score. A coach only has so many scholarships to spread throughout the team.  If you can manage to get a bunch of academic aid, that means the team’s scholarship money goes farther, and the coach will love you for it.

All of this is nothing new, but let’s get real.  How much academic aid are we talking here?

npcTake a look at a D1 school, Seattle University. They have, right there on their website, a “net price calculator.”

Those numbers qualify for $15,000 a year, $60,000 over four years, right off the top of your college cost!

Invest some time and money in test prep, and it could pay off BIG TIME!
