Colleges for a 1200 on the SAT

What colleges can I apply to with a SAT score of 1200?

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.

Is a 1200 a good SAT score?

Yes, a score of 1200 is quite good. It places you in the top 76th percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million test takers of the SAT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a well above above average job answering the questions on the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the test. 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.

What is the ACT equivalent to a 1200 SAT score?

For comparison purposes, a 1200 on the SAT converts to a 25 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.
