Yesterday’s SAT priority registration fiasco
Dear Foley Prep Family,
Many Foley Prepsters have been texting and emailing me about their desperate attempts at signing up for the August and September SAT exams last night. I have also heard from test site administrators (school officials) that they have plenty of seats available at their schools but the College Board is showing that there are no available seats. One told me that he has 75 seats, 25 filled, but the College Board won’t allow others to join. (Sorry, this is up in Connecticut.)
My sense is that the College Board’s system could not handle the massive crush of people looking to register yesterday, and that it would be wise to keep trying as often as you can. Priority registration is open to students who
were registered for the June SAT and didn’t cancel, or
are in the class of 2020 or 2021 (we’re hearing that some students in the class of 2022 are claiming that they are in the class of 2021 to get around this – we do not condone this behavior)
Please let me know if you have success. I wish I could offer actual help, not just information sharing!
Please don’t miss the promo pricing, which ends on June 1st. We may extend it until June 15th, but the discount will be less sweet. Foley Prep has never been a volume business – we cap our groups at 5 students and our 1-on-1 tutoring is filling up. With all the changes taking place, students will need steady, expert coaching through the fall.
College Admissions Services
Right now I have maxed out my roster of college admissions clients – I personally work with about 10 every year and Foley Prep has capacity for about 30 or so. Please get in touch, as we have a marvelous team approach to helping students with their essays – all rising seniors should be completing their first draft of the Common App essay this week!
I hope everyone is doing well. Yesterday I did a 40 mile “recovery ride” up Sunshine Canyon above Boulder. I’m about to do a 3 hour ride to Golden and back. Then I have lunch, then I tutor and meet with students on into the evening. Pretty decent life, all things considered 🙂
