In order to understand what SAT score you will need to get into college, you need to consider what schools you would like to apply to. Below is a list of over 300 schools and their corresponding Average SAT and ACT scores. If you don’t see the school you are interested in, make sure and go to their admissions’ website and look it up. Also, SAT and ACT scores will keep you out of a school, but they won’t get you in. Just because you have scores above a school’s average scores is no reason to assume you will get in. The quality and uniqueness of your application, including your essays, recommendations, and high school grades and activities will be the main reasons why a school decides to admit you.
