PSAT for 8th-Graders?!

Karl Schellscheidt

The College Board recently announced plans to administer a PSAT for eighth-grade students starting in 2010. The test would be administered with the hope of identifying talented students before they begin high school. Some critics say there’s already too much pressure on kids to do well on standardized tests. Read the Los Angeles Times article by Gale Holland and decide for yourself.

New SAT Score Reporting Policy

Karl Schellscheidt

eprep test prep videoThe College Board recently announced that starting in 2009, high school students will be able to choose which SAT scores colleges get to see. I found the usnews.com article “Kids Can Pick Which SAT Scores a College Sees” by Lucia Graves interesting.

I hope we see the day when kids can report their best CR, math, and writing scores separately. I also hope we see the day when kids can go in and take CR, math, and writing tests separately (i.e., SAT-Subject-Test style).

ePrep in Russia?

Karl Schellscheidt

Hello Everyone,

It is Wednesday morning here in Moscow. From the 19th floor lounge of the Swissotel, I can see the Kremlin in the distance. I visited Red Square, Saint Basil’s Cathedral, etc. yesterday . . . impressive.

So what am I doing in Russia? I am actually here to watch the 2008 Champions League Final, which will be played this evening at 10:30 (local time). For the first time in the tournament’s over-fifty-year history, two English teams have made the final: Manchester United and Chelsea. (Chelsea finished second to ManU in the Premier League this season.)

I am traveling with three friends, two are big ManU fans (brothers from South Africa who played soccer at Rutgers University in the late 1980s), the other an ardent Chelsea supporter (one of my childhood friends and fellow Princeton graduate who lived in London for seven years before recently moving back to the States). (I think they invited me along to sit between them. I don’t really have a favorite.)

Anyway, I’ll be back in the United States tomorrow, Thursday, May 22nd, the day SAT scores are scheduled to be available online. Good luck!

Anti-SAT Protest at UC Berkeley

Karl Schellscheidt

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comAccording to an article that appeared on the website of The Daily Californian, a group of protesters marched through campus demanding the elimination of the SAT as factor in UC Berkeley’s admission process. The protesters claim that the test discrimiates against minority students, making it more difficult for them to compete for admission spots.

Whether the SAT really does discriminate against minority and/or low-income students, I am not sure. (I hope it doesn’t.)
Whether the SAT really does add nothing to the admission process at UC Berkeley, again, I am not sure.

There are, however, a few things of which I am certain:

1. The SAT does test mastery of subject areas (math, reading, and writing) that are critical for success in college and life beyond;
2. Success on the SAT requires the kind of problem solving and critical thinking skills that are generally rewarded in the real world; and
3. Public dialogue in generally a good thing. (That’s why I decided to share the article.)

Ivy League Football Film Completed

Karl Schellscheidt

8 Promotional Image

For Love & Honor Productions is proud to announce the completion of Eight: Ivy League Football and America, an original feature-length documentary film (TRT 96 minutes).

Eight, which tells the history of Ivy League football from its earliest days to the present, is narrated by two-time Tony Award-winning actor Brian Dennehy (Columbia ’60). It also features interviews with Academy Award-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones (Harvard ’69), Penn State Coach Joe Paterno (Brown ’50), ESPN anchor Chris Berman (Brown ’77), General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt (Dartmouth ’78), former Secretary of State George Shultz (Princeton ’42), College and Pro Football Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik (Penn ‘49), four-time Pro Bowl running back Calvin Hill (Yale ’69), Chicago Bears standout lineman Dan Jiggetts (Harvard ’76), Heisman Trophy winner Dick Kazmaier (Princeton ’52), actor and Heisman Trophy runner-up Ed Marinaro (Cornell ’72), Intuit Chairman Bill Campbell (Columbia ‘62), and many others.

From the game’s rough and chaotic beginnings, Ivy League schools have built American football, produced some its most enduring and inspirational figures, and embodied what intercollegiate athletics can be at their best. At the core of Ivy League football are the values and leadership lessons transmitted to the men who play it. These men have continued to teach and lead the country based on their experiences both on the gridiron and in the classroom. They are the student-athletes who thrilled America when they played, and who continue to excel today. Eight: Ivy League Football and America is their story.

The film is directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou (A Cantor’s Tale: Ergo Media and the cool surface: Columbia TriStar) and produced by Mr. Anjou and Mark F. Bernstein (author of Football: The Ivy League Origins of an American Obsession: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2001). It was edited by Karlyn Michelson (Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century: The Resurgence and A Cantor’s Tale) and features an original score by Grammy-nominated guitarist Gary Lucas (Gods and Monsters).

Further details regarding the film’s premiere and distribution platform will be posted on its website: www.forloveandhonorfilm.com.

To learn more about the documentary, please contact Erik Anjou at 917.691.0270 or Mark F. Bernstein at 215.848.1999; or email forloveandhonorfilm@gmail.com.

New Year’s Resolutions

Karl Schellscheidt

eprep test prep videoEvery year around this time, some people resolve to change certain aspects of their lives. “Starting January 1st, I will exercise more, eat healthier, be more patient, spend less money, etc.” Most new year’s resolutions are worth making because they involve some form of self improvement.

If your current list of resolutions includes any education oriented goals, like preparing for the SAT, I’d like to offer you some words of wisdom. DO NOT EXPECT OVERNIGHT SUCCESSES. (more…)

College Admissions Swimming Proficiency Requirement

Michelle Hartwell

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comI came across this article and found it intriguing… I’d never heard of the swimming requirement as my school – San Diego State University – did not have this requirement. Imagine having to show that you can swim in order to graduate? I wondered why such a requirement was ever even implemented. (more…)
