Looking at the most recent published freshman class SAT scores for all U.S. colleges, we've found 357 schools where submitting a 1300 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 1300 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.
