Hello, receiving this scholarship would be a great help for me and my family to pay for my college expenses. I am interested in attending a University as a Psychology major and will hopefully one day become a Clinical Psychologist with a PhD. I genuinely enjoy caring for others and would love to treat and help people with their mental or behavioral issues.

I know I am the one you are looking for!! My name is Claire Barnes and I am currently attending Oakmont HS in Roseville, CA. I have a GPA of 4.06 as an IB student. I am on two sports, water polo and swimming, and I have a weekend job as a lifeguard at LifeTime Athletic. On top of that, my mom has been my only parent now for 8 years, raising 3 of us, so money is slim, but we get by. I have been determined to pour my time into good things of life and to move forward. Education in my backbone, I have overcome adversity by hard work and a drive to succeed. Please help me to achieve my next goal- which is to graduate college and become a Pediatrician.

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
