Monday, June 4, 2012

I am asked this question regularly, and would like to properly address it. First and foremost, The SAT exam offered in the following months: October, November, December, January, March, and May and June.

The Exact Test Dates for the remaining months of 2012 and 2013 are as follows:

  • October 6, 2012
  • November 3, 2012
  • December 1, 2012
  • January 26,2013
  • March 9, 2013
  • May 4, 2013

Before we get into the best time to take the SAT, I must address what I call the “Score Choice Scam.” Well, here goes: With the new Score Choice policy (which is very tricky, and I will elaborate on it in another article), students are informed that they may take the SAT as many times as they’d like and just have to submit the scores they want to the schools they choose.

Men’s Interview Attire

The Suit:

  • The sleeves should taper, gradually ending just over the wrist so the shirt cuff extends about 1/2 inch beyond the jacket sleeve.
  • The pant leg bottom in the front should touch the front of the shoe and angle towards the back of the shoe to fall just above the heel.
  • Pant cuff or no cuff is a personal choice.
  • Choose dark colors, such as navy, gray or coffee beige. Suit should be solid color or subtle pinstripes.
  • The fabric should be worsted wool or gabardine, a firm hard-finish durable fabric (such as lightweight wool or rayon).
  • Suit is always first choice, but if unavailable, a navy jacket or blazer with black or navy buttons and gray or beige pants are acceptable.
    The Dress Shirt:
  • The button down collar offers a more casual look than the more formal business style of a point collar.
  • Choose a good fit, neatly pressed.
  • Best colors include white, pale blue, tan or yellow
  • Always wear an undershirt. Avoid v-neck style since the neckline may show
    The Tie:
  • Your tie should be darker than your shirt and should not extend below the belt.
  • Purchase several ties that compliment your suit to give your wardrobe versatility.
  • Wear 100% silk (or similar looking) in solid colors or small patterns.
