Shreeyagya Khemka (CMU ´17) gives an interesting tip about SAT prep


What was your SAT and Subject Tests prep strategy?

For your SATs take 10 section mocks (most books just have 9). The extra section can really throw you off on the main day. For Subjects Tests know your matter well and practice a test or two before the actual test day.

What did you find most challenging about the college app process?

The most challenging part about the college application process for me were the essays. I would really suggest everyone out there to start working on their essays as soon as possible. More often than not people misjudge the importance of essays. Also, get help but don't allow that to be the reason that you write an essay that isn't what you indented it to be.

How did your college list change over time?

I was very set on where I wanted to go so my college list did not change much over time.

What advice would you give future applicants?

EA a safety school - that way you can shorten your Regular Decision list ( that is if you get in...)

What are you looking forward to the most in college?

 I am looking forward to everything about college from roommates to research labs.

What major/s are you considering?

I am currently going in for Information Systems but may change to either Computer Science or Business

What are your plans for summer?

For the summer I plan on taking the Advance Placement exams and learning to play a musical instrument.
