With a 1200 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 691 schools where submitting a 1200 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 1200 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.

If a 1200 isn't strong enough to get into your dream school, consider taking a test prep course to see if you can raise your score.
