A. Even a Heisman Trophy winner wouldn’t dream of playing in the Super Bowl without intensive preparation: studying the opponent, developing a game plan, and practicing, practicing, practicing.
To a student applying for college — especially a student who wants to earn a scholarship — college entrance exams are the Super Bowl. Your opponent is the test. Doorway to College Foundation resources help you get to know your opponent. We teach you winning strategies as part of a game plan that gives you control of the test. Then, we give you the tools to practice, practice, practice until you can do your very best.
If you’re a junior, you already have 11, 12, or even more years of school learning packed into your brain. That’s good! You’ll need to draw on that knowledge to take the test. What school most likely didn’t give you, however, is an understanding of how each test is created, how the question types work, or how to use your limited time most effectively during the test. We’re experts in that. And we know what you need to know to do your best.
