“Your SAT composite should be 1500 or higher (about 750 or higher per section) if you want to be competitive at highly selective schools.”
SAT scores above 1083 are considered better than the national average. Anything below 950 is considered very low. 1340 is considered a good high score but not by IVY League standards. If you are trying to get into an average selective school, it is wise to aim for the top 50 percent. Good grades but lower SAT scores can hurt your chance to get admitted to a selective school. Chances are greatly improved if you score 1500 or above.
- Schools like, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Yale and MIT, aren’t looking for students that just meet the national criterion for a high score.
- State Universities and colleges are apt to be more lenient, regarding Sat numbers that they deem as acceptable.
