How to Apply to College

............in a Pandemic

by Bianca Ianneillo

Expectation: Take your standardized tests.

Reality: Except there are virtually no schools that are offering standardized tests, so this will prove to be a challenge. You will get canceled out of three ACTs, one of which you found out was canceled twelve hours before your scheduled time. Your April ACT will be taken in October for the first time, and you’ll have to cross state lines while driving two hours to take it. In fact, when you scheduled your ACT, you were on vacation and you needed to take your computer to the beach because scheduling it alone took almost three hours.

Apparently, the standardized test alone

wasn’t hard enough.
