Colleges for a 1000 on the SAT

What colleges can I apply to with a SAT score of 1000?

With a 1000 on the SAT, these are the colleges you have a competitive chance to get into

Looking at the most recent published freshman class SAT scores for all U.S. colleges, we've found 572 schools where submitting a 1000 with your college application places you around the middle SAT score range of admitted students' average SAT scores. They represent the most popular schools where you will be a competitive applicant and those which have historically accepted a 1000 SAT score. You can view your reach schools and safety schools by using the admission chance filter. Keep in mind, a SAT score alone won't get you admitted. It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

Is a 1000 a good SAT score?

A score of 1000 is a little worse than average. It places you in the bottom 40th percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million test takers of the SAT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a slightly below average job answering the questions on the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the test. If a 1000 isn't strong enough to get into your dream school, consider taking a test prep course to see if you can raise your score.

What is the ACT equivalent to a 1000 SAT score?

For comparison purposes, a 1000 on the SAT converts to a 19 on the ACT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.
