With a 900 on the SAT, these colleges are a good match for your score

Looking at the most recent published freshman class SAT scores for all U.S. colleges, we've found 152 schools where submitting a 900 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 900 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.

Since your score is on the lower end of the range, consider taking a test prep course and re-taking the SAT to see if you can do better.
