1000 SAT Score, 40% Percentile

These Midwestern colleges are a good match for you

If you've achieved a score of 1000 on your SATs, this places you squarely within the average range for accepted students at 129 Midwestern colleges. This list features popular colleges where your application will likely be competitive, given their historical acceptance of students with a 1000 SAT score. However, it's crucial to remember that a good SAT score is not the sole criterion for admission. In fact, may colleges are now test optional.

The creation of this list is rooted in a comprehensive analysis of SAT scores from students admitted to all Midwestern colleges

Is a 1000 SAT bad?

A score of 1000 is a little worse than average. It situates you in the bottom 40th percentile on the national scale, underperforming the majority of the 1.7 million SAT test takers. This score signifies your slightly below average performance in answering questions in the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the exam. The SAT is scored out of a maximum of 1600 and a minimum of 400, meaning your 1000 score represents 62% of the total possible points. If a 1000 does not meet the requirements of your preferred college, you might want to consider enrolling in a test prep course to potentially enhance your score.
