Bodsat score gains are over three times the industry average.
The average Bodsat student’s score gain is 180 points.
That’s over three times the industry average. And keep in mind that we don’t accept students scoring under 1800 in the first place, so we have a handicap in our averages: none of our students has more than 600 points left to be gained (and many have far fewer). Even so, Bodsat students gain more points on average than their friends in competing programs.
A better way to express our results is in percentage of points to a perfect 2400.
Our students have only 600 or fewer points that they’re able to gain. And of those points, Bodsat graduates gain an average of one-third. If the industry as a whole could do that, the average gain would be 300 points instead of what it is, which is closer to 30. But you don’t have to take our word for it; read the article in the Wall Street Journal.

Score gains are only the beginning.
A Bodsat program is a crash course in real-life skills.
Our graduates come to understand the intersection of academic knowledge and real-world performance. Our analytical methods put our students in touch with their strengths and weaknesses, so they can leverage the former to overcome the latter.
We teach a basis for effective thought and communication.
The self-evaluation and meta-cognitive skills our students practice with us (that is: knowing themselves, and thinking about how they think) contribute hugely to future success. Better test scores, yes, but also success in future classes and, ultimately, in careers.
How much is the right college worth to you?
The benefits of higher scores are priceless.
This part of the equation is simple: a higher SAT score gives you a better chance of getting into your first choice school. And attending the school most suited to your personality and skills can extend your opportunities throughout your life.
A great score can save you tuition money.
SAT scores can be worth a great deal of scholarship money. With total college costs soaring past $250,000, even a few percentage points of savings can mean tens of thousands of dollars. In addition to improving your chances of receiving a merit-based scholarship, Bodsat can help you reach the higher score you need for entrance to the UC of your choice, which can save up to $100,000.
A great score improves your earnings later.
The research indicates that for each 100-point increase in average SAT score, a graduate can expect a 3% to 7% increase in lifetime earnings. And, on average, holders of bachelors degrees earn $3MM (2014 dollars) over their lifetimes.
The math, though surprising, is clear: completing even our shortest program increases your lifetime earnings by $315,000, on average.
Just like college, SAT prep is an investment.
And just like college, your investment in a Bodsat program pays off in many ways.
The skills you learn at Bodsat extend beyond the SAT; the experience pays off for many years.
Bodsat students learn that there is an art to improvement. The key, under-taught, real-world skills that we teach you to push your score higher are the same skills that will help you improve in any endeavor. From graduate school exams, to that big interview, to the adult skills and perspectives you'll use in the workplace, your experience with Bodsat will give you an advantage for years to come.

“The questions and ideas from other students in the program often made me realize things that I did not even know I misunderstood.”
