Analyze early application results with FLEX's expert counselors! This year’s early application results are particularly important because they give indications of nd insight into current the changing landscape of college prep and college admissions during this time of how colleges will value and weight different criteria during COVID. For the Class of 2022, it could be an indicator of things like value of the SAT, achievement or service, and more.
