  1. It probably depends on the school - I'd bet some only scholarship those they are still trying to entice, others will give the scholarships to the best students regardless of if they've already committed or not. My oldest applied early decision and was told that the decision did not affect his chances to get the merit scholarships.
  2. I used a specific ACT prep book - it taught the grammar that the ACT focuses on. Helped much for some focused study.
  3. I order mine through Yes, I've had to go back and show my high school diploma (several times) even though I have a graduate degree. Another reason I wanted to give my (black and white thinking kid) a diploma - When he fills out applications and the question is did you receive a high school diploma, he can check YES. I'm afraid he'd check no if I simply graduated him and didn't actually give him a diploma. 🙂
  4. I'd ask Amazon for the reasons stated above. I'd worry that you'd be out both prices otherwise.
  5. Yes. Not for me, but for my friend. High ACT score, lots of APs, no SAT2s. Got scholarships at schools that had SAT2 requirements. Of course, I wouldn't recommend ignoring the requirement, but in your case where your daughter changed her mind, I would certainly contact the school and/or simply apply. I'd apply unless i was told there is absolutely no way without the SAT2s. Schools make all sorts of unadvertised exceptions if they have good cause.
  6. As stated above, it's not a problem if you use the same AP number/sticker for all the tests. We always have schools make us fill out the forms ahead of time. We then have to take the student book with the numbers with us for other exams (which might be first). I always tell the other schools that we are bringing our student pack with the AP stickers so it doesn't get confusing. Otherwise we've had schools try to be "helpful" and fill out the forms ahead of time with a new number.
  7. We practice initially with unlimited time so that we have a baseline score of what they could make without a time limit as well as a general guess as to how much faster they need to do. We review all missed questions as well as ones they mark with a question mark. I always go over punctuation rules used on the ACT. Practice with old tests and directed practice at specifics that are missed.
  8. Yes, you have to email and ask for the option - it's not advertised on the website. Derek Owens will give you access to the videos and will send you a file with all the solutions. We've done several courses this way and once for me (and also for others) the solutions are not sent right away with access to the course. I just had to email and ask for them and got an apology that they had not already been sent to me. It's a great option if you are capable of self-grading.
  9. I'd go ahead and take the exam. It's certainly possible for her to do well enough to get credit if she's making a B in the class. I'd certainly take some practice exams and see how she scores before deciding for sure whether or not to take the test. You don't have to report AP scores, but I"m not sure if you can only report selected scores - it may be all or none.
  10. I like that I have access to all the released exams in the course audit account. Also, you aren't supposed to list it as an AP course without it officially being designated. Without in listed as AP, it won't be weighted as an AP class - this will matter for some scholarship opportunities.
  11. Well, I did provide how much my son would be paying since the 2nd would hopefully lower the cost of the first. In your friend's case, I'd call the schools financial aid office directly and ask some questions and see if you can get some real numbers. They should be able to provide a reasonable estimate of what would change when the oldest graduates.
  12. Well ds has a decision - University of Kentucky! He has been accepted into the SEAM Honor's program and has both a UK presidential scholarship, UK engineering scholarship and some local scholarships.
  13. My son has completed the coursework and is working on AP prep - currently he's scoring a 5 on practice tests. He's a STEM guy and has enjoyed the course.
  14. My son has been doing this course this year. He has enjoyed the workbook in addition to the book. I've given him permission to skip things but I think he's done it all. I will be getting a new workbook next year for my daughter to do.
  15. I think I made a short list of educational partners on my school profile, but where I spelled it all out was on my course descriptions. On the first page of my course descriptions I put educational partners and gave a short description of each as well as what classes were taken through them. My course list was several pages and I turned it in as an extra transcript.
