College Advocate is particularly vital in the District of Columbia because the SAT scores of students in District of Columbia's public schools are the lowest in the nation. Despite a strong academic record, it is quite difficult for talented students to gain admission to the nation’s most selective colleges if they lack strong SAT scores. Admissions counselors at top-ranked colleges and universities would like to admit more students from public schools in the District of Columbia but many great students do not have competitive SAT scores. For this reason, all College Advocate scholars receive intense SAT preparation from an experienced instructor.
