Patrick was not your common high school pupil. With effective mother and father, you could fancy he was bound for an elite east coast institution. But while that may possibly be the case now, it wasnt a number of years in the past.
Reduced grades (a 2.five sophomore GPA) and SAT scores (1050) werent his only struggles. Brilliant, but rebelling against stress from his parents and fierce higher college competitors, Patrick floundered at a local prep college. To make issues worse, his teachers and counselor misplaced self confidence in him.
Out of the blue something changed.
Patrick met Jonathan and Melody Mitchell, co-founders of the Ucan Prep. Jonathans creed college students will rise to a teachers expectations manufactured an impact on Patrick.
Soon after a yr lengthy academic makeover, Patricks reduced GPA enhanced dramatically (to a 3.8 in his junior 12 months), his SAT scores soared (410 factors on the old edition SAT) and he gained admission into some of the very best liberal arts US colleges (including Bates and Colby, where he is currently enrolled).
A 2005 Ucan alumni, Patricks accomplishment inspired the class of 2006. These seniors test scores on the new SAT and admission to leading schools have been excellent.
