       SAT
          Scholastic Aptitude Test, owned by The College Board, is taken by more than two million
             students throughout 190 countries and territories.  Students take it because the SAT is one

             *free college planning resources that help students choose and apply to colleges that are a
                good fit for students
             *connects students to scholarships and merit aid to help pay for college 
             *if a student opts to participate in the Student Search Service when s/he registers for the SAT,
                   the student hears from colleges, universities, and scholarship programs
     
             The SAT is being redesigned and will be launched in March of 2016.
