Way to go, College Board! Trying to help low income kids with high test scores to apply to college. They’re also trying to increase the numbers of low income minorities in AP courses. Pretty cool.

The kids are getting packets with fee waivers, info and tips on applying to schools, financial aid, and other useful information.

I loooove that they’re doing this!
