Lauren Gaggioli is a #2 Pencil Nerd. (At least, that's what her dad nicknamed her in high school because she actually enjoyed taking tests.) After eight years working as a private test prep tutor, Lauren founded Higher Scores Test Prep, an online SAT and ACT prep company. She is also the host of The College Checklist Podcast, a weekly podcast about all things college admission. Lauren continues to take the SAT and ACT today and enjoys the experience just as much as she did in high school!
