In today’s episode, I break down the process of getting onto Shark Tank, how long it takes, and the odds of your segment actually getting on air. Then, I walk you through what each of the Sharks said during my segment and how to think about their feedback. I then opine on whether or not it’s a smart idea to skip taking the SAT or ACT now that the UC schools are no longer requiring it.
