The Best New England Colleges for a 1000 on the SAT

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

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

Looking at the most recent published freshman class SAT scores for all New England colleges, we've found 32 schools where submitting a 1000 with your college application places you around the middle SAT score range of admitted students' average SAT scores. The colleges are ranked by their position on the CollegeSimply best colleges ranking. They represent the top 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.

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 1600 SAT scale range per the College Board's concordance tables.
