Higher Test Scores and Scholarships
Can higher test Scores help win college scholarships? THAT is the question and we have the answers!
Have you heard the news? The #CampusChat Twitter chat has moved to a new time! We are now chatting from 1-2pm, est, every Wednesday. This week’s chat is a scholarship chat and I’m proud to introduce my guest, Lauren Gaggioli. Lauren can be found @HigherScores on Twitter, so make sure you are following her.
All about Lauren: Lauren Gaggioli is a Number 2 Pencil Nerd. (At least, that’s what her dad nicknamed her in high school because she actually enjoyed taking tests.) After graduating from NYU with a BFA in Theater, Lauren rediscovered her love of scantrons and began tutoring the ACT and SAT throughout Southern California. She is the founder of Higher Scores Test Prep, an online SAT & ACT prep company. She is also the host of The College Checklist Podcast, a weekly podcast about all things college admissions. Lauren continues to take the SAT & ACT today and enjoys the experience just as much as she did in high school.
Don’t miss this #CampusChat as we discuss and share how higher test scores can help students win more college scholarships!

What is a Twitter chat and how do I participate?
Joining a Twitter chat may seem intimidating, but it’s really is easy! If you don’t already have one, go to Twitter.com and create a free account. (Students, please keep in mind that scholarship judges and college admissions officers read students’ tweets and take note of Twitter usernames! Try and use your real name or something that represents you and passes the Grandma Test. More on the Grandma Test here.)
Once you have your account set up, type #CampusChat into the search bar at the top of the page. Be sure to use the hashtag —> # in front of “CampusChat”. This will bring up all of the Tweets involving SmartCollegeVisit and #CampusChat. At 1pm, you will start to see the questions being asked and the answers being shared. Keep refreshing the page to see all the tweets about #CampusChat, or use a free service like Hootsuite.com to easily follow along and join in on the chat. If you have a question, just ask it in 140 characters or less, making sure to include #CampusChat somewhere in your tweet.
