About this livestream
Applying to college is hard, especially if you’re indecisive. With so many choices to make throughout the admissions process, you might find yourself hung up on which of each are best for you. Today, Shravya will be presenting our latest episode of This or That, where we run through different options you have during the applications cycle and how to best navigate them.
In this episode will be tackling standardized testing; in particular, whether you should take the ACT or SAT. Shravya will be walking through the similarities and differences between each test, and which makes the most sense for you based on your academic strengths and trajectory. She’ll also touch on applying test-optional during COVID and how it applies to this topic.
Shravya will set some time aside at the end for questions, so drop by with all of your testing-related questions so she can give you personalized advice!
Undergrad College: Rice University '20
Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.
My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
