New blog post up by our Marketing Intern Danielle!
β€œIt wasn’t until I met with my college advisor that I realized how important my AP scores would be. I was fortunate enough to come into school with enough AP credits to allow me either to graduate an entire semester early or to spread out my classes into smaller course loads. This allowed me the flexibility to decide whether I wanted to save a lot of money in tuition or to have less hectic semesters so I could use my free time to build my resume through internships or jobs.”

This kid! Acceptances from #ClarksonUniversity, #CazenoviaCollege, #ManhattanCollege and #FairfieldUniversity, #ohiostate, #baruchcollege, #bryantuniversity and the list goes on.
