The Best Eastern Colleges for a 1000 on the SAT

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

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

Looking at the most recent published freshman class SAT scores for all Eastern colleges, we've found 114 schools where a 1000 SAT places you within or slightly outside the middle fifty percent of admitted students. The colleges are ranked by their position on our best colleges ranking. They represent the better schools you have a competitive chance of getting into and those which have historically accepted a 1000 SAT score. 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 on the SAT a good 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 students taking the SAT entrance exam this year. 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.

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.

Important: If you took the SAT prior to March 2016, your test was scored on the old 2400 point scale. All SAT scores on this site have been updated to reflect the SAT 1600 point scale per the College Board's concordance tables.
