DD took her SATs earlier this month. We were psyched. We didn't pressure her, but based on her PSAT, as well as the casual practice tests she took, we were looking forward to something really positive.
Her scores came back yesterday and...we're both so disappointed. I mean, her Math score is actually below the national average. Her Reading and Writing scores weren't bad, but certainly not outstanding.
Honestly, I'm kind of crushed. I know she is, too. I mean, if her scores are going to look like this, I'm wondering if she's really capable of going for that dream career, which is very math intensive.
I can't even begin to imagine what went wrong.
She wants to give it another shot in March, and I think it did shock her into realizing that spending time preparing more diligently will be in her best interest.
UPDATE: Well, all her testing is over for the fall. She seemed upbeat heading in *and* coming out of her ACTs today, so we'll see how far a positive attitude takes her. :) Thanks for all the support and well-wishes!
