Fame SAT Recent
It was Monday, June 19th. I went to the bus stop at around 7:25 am, and there was a silver Ford van that was our “bus” waiting for me. I got in, and there were a few other people already inside. There was barely any space. It was made worse when, at the next stop, 4 more people came in, making the van at capacity. It’s going to be a long two weeks, I thought. Once we arrived, I felt even more isolated. People seemed to know each other, and were talking, while I just sat there. But the instruction from the teachers was worth it.
Last Summer, I could attend Dr. Li’s SAT Prep class for only two weeks due to my distance. This past August, about one year after I took the class, I took the SAT and received a 1590, with a 800 on math and a 790 on English. I got a 8/6/8 on the essay portion. I wish I could have a longer exposure as the learning impact goes well beyond the SAT score.
With the restructuring of the SAT and my lack of improvement to begin with, I thought I could not possibly score well. I knew I didn’t need a perfect score to enter my dream school of UC Berkeley, but I was not going to score even a 1560, the equivalent of a 2300. Dr. Li’s class gave me the motivation and strategies I needed to improve on the SAT.

Like you said good SAT score worth a lot. My daughter has weight GPA of 4.75 (7 APs) like most students you have. But her SAT 2400 and recommendation from U Penn due to her Gold keys on writing cracks the door open.
She got $49,800 scholarship plus $5,000 financial aid from U Penn yesterday. U Penn is her early decision school and it is her dream school. She only applied one and she got it.
Hi Dr. Li! This is Alicia, a current sophmore from Kentucky. I just wanted to write in and say thank you! I got my SAT score back the other day and it was a 2400!!!
I just wanted to say thanks, since I couldn't have done it without your camp! I'll be back for the 2016 summer camp to practice for the PSAT!
Note: Alicia's brother John was our first student who scored 2400 10 years ago (2005). Here is his historical testimony.
