ap sats

Analyzed two poems for AP Lit earlier. Today I finished a practice reading section from the new SAT and scored a 45 out of 52. I took it untimed and throughout the day because my schedule was crazy, so I may have done better than I would have if I had taken it in one go (although I was extremely tired so??) who even knows. All I know for sure is that I have a month to improve!

The SAT was created by a noted racist and anti-immigrant activist who had previously written difficult, biased exams intended to prevent immigrants from becoming citizens. Happy test day!!

College Apps Gothic

The emails begin in sophomore year. The mailings follow shortly after. You do not know when the sense of creeping dread began. Maybe it has always been there.

The void of despair opens August 1st.

They track demonstrated interest. They track undemonstrated interest. They are always watching. When you open their email, the rustling in your walls gets louder, closer. They are here.

The brochure tells you that this college requires the SAT or ACT, two SAT subject tests, and the trial of darkness. Your GPA dictates the number of weapons you are allowed to bring with you. They only tell you the survival rate is better than Harvard’s.

You wake up one morning to a pile of college mail stacked neatly outside your door. You have not given your address to any college. How do they know where you sleep? How do they–

You may apply to this university under single choice early action, binding. The form smells like sulfur and your signature is red, too red. They do not tell you what you are bound to.

On your campus visit, you look around at the other visiting students. They stare back with lifeless eyes, deep shadows beneath their dead gazes. You see the same when you look into a mirror. You have not slept through the night for four years.

The tour guide’s smile is too wide, her teeth too sharp. You swear you hear her laugh grating an octave too low as she goes over the meal plans. She avoids the sun and when the light hits her eyes just right, you can see a glint of yellow.

Numbers haunt your dreams until you shiver awake, visions of SAT bubbles swimming before you. You do not know why you are required to fill them in with blood, or what machine they are sacrificed to.

No one you know has been accepted as an engineering major. No one, in fact, has ever been accepted as an engineering major. Still, thousands apply every year and are consumed by the void.

Reporting activities can help a college better understand your life outside of the classroom. Your activities may include arts, athletics, clubs, employment, personal commitments, arcane worship of the underworld,  fulfillment of pacts with elder gods, eternal screaming, and other pursuits. Do you have any activities that you wish to report?

You are no longer a name, only an AP number. The test proctor warns you that without these eight digits, you cannot access the rest of your existence.

The multiple choice answers are all option D.

The common app now has a supplemental option in which you may submit your soul. Applicants are reminded that they may select up to three colleges under this action, only one of which may be early decision.

Please describe your life to date, complete with documentation. You have 650 words.
