May's session of Ask America's College Counselor brought out students and parents from across the country asking questions on topics like SAT/ACT scores, AP classes, class rank, and much more!
If you missed this month's Facebook Live Q&A, keep reading for a list of some of the questions I answered and to watch the full video.
SOME QUESTIONS YOU'LL SEE ME ANSWER:
- What are your thoughts on the University of Minnesota compared to Indiana University?
- My daughter is very interested in attending the same college her older sister graduated from this year. Should she mention her alum sister somewhere in the application?

- Is there an advantage to taking AP classes?
- What’s the difference between the SAT and ACT?
- In the past, you have recommended only submitting AP scores of 5s, not 4s. Can you elaborate on this suggestion?
