College Counseling

Welcome to college counseling at Bryn Mawr. The college admissions process is a partnership venture that brings students, parents, and college counselors together for the support and encouragement of each student. Throughout the process, the overriding goal of the college counseling office is to help students look within themselves for clues to what is important in the search for an appropriate post-high school experience.

    PSAT 10 Testing (Sophomores Only)

    The PSAT 10 (practice test for the SAT) is purely practice. This is the same test that the juniors took in the fall (the PSAT/NMSQT). It is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test when taken as a junior (only juniors are eligible for National Merit Recognition). Our hope is that by administering the PSAT 10 in the spring sophomores will be able to test under more “normal” testing conditions. Sophomore students will be automatically registered for this test by the school. 
    Location: KVB Gym
