MSA Mentorship Fairfax

MSA Mentorship Fairfax is led by the MSA of George Mason University. This will be our first semester of the program and we’re excited to work with you all!

Sessions are held monthly and are one of two types:

  • Regular structure split into 4 segments (below) which include Presentation, Salaat, Advising, and Personalized Mentoring.
  • All mentors need to be present with their laptops.
  • Students must bring their SAT book & a laptop if possible, with all their relevant materials: old SAT test scores, grade reports from school, any applications or essays, etc.
  • Mock tests occur three times during the semester – once in the beginning as a diagnostic, once in the middle, and once near the end of the semester. Each session lasts for 4 hours from 1-5pm.
  • Requires only one or two mentors to run the entire session. Mentors simply pick the test from the book, set the clock, do their own work, and invest the last 30 minutes running through the answers with mentees checking and grading the test. Essays are all given an average score of 6. Mentees are STRONGLY encouraged to understand the problems they answered incorrectly at home.
  • Gives mentees proper exposure and consistency required for SAT practice. Also gives a helpful structure to address the hardest part about the SAT: committing to practice tests by doing it on your own will

Application for Spring 2014 is now open!

Our program for Spring 2014 will begin on Sunday, February 9th. Entrance is as selective as the number of mentors we have registered. The essay-based application is completed by every student wanting to join – returning or new.

When we say we are looking for talented students, talented to us means motivated – not how high your GPA or SAT scores are currently. Our goal with the application is simply gauge that. Every student has the potential to be amazing, but it is the ones who are going to put in the work that we want to take.

If you are not accepted into the program, we highly encourage you to prove our decision wrong and work through all the freely accessible material at home with your parents or older sibling as your mentor.



With the rapid growth of the program, we are in need of more MENTORS in Boston!
