Alexis Avila Founder/President of Prepped & Polished reacts to the November 5, 2010 Good Morning America report about SAT essay length and score increase. Good Morning America Report

Parenting Squad Article
Alexis believes that while essay score length is one factor to getting a higher SAT essay score, essay substance and essay structure are just as important.
Hi everyone, Alexis Avila here, founder of Prepped and Polished, LLC. Now,
ParentingSquad.com recently featured me in their SAT essay article, which
talked about the Good Morning America report of a 14-year-old high school
student, Milo Beckman, who researched the alleged correlation between
longer SAT essays and higher SAT essay scores.
Now while SAT essay graders will certainly appreciate you filling up both
allotted pages of your SAT essay, if they don’t see any substance in your
SAT essay, they won’t hesitate to give you a bad mark. Now to go a step
further, I find that SAT essay structure is another essential component for
an SAT essay grader.
So, for example, it’s really important to have a strong opening
introductory paragraph because SAT essay graders are reading hundreds of
essays. So they get bored after the hundred and first. You got to grab
their attention right away. So overall, sure, it’s important to have a
pretty long SAT essay, about two pages, but also have a well-structured
essay and have a lot of substance in your essay and I guarantee you’ll have
a good SAT essay score.
Good luck, and I’ll talk to you soon.
Do you believe that the longer the SAT essay, the better the SAT essay score? Do you have other SAT essay tips?
