Colleges for a 1100 SAT

One of the most prominent standardized tests in the country, the SAT is utilized by many colleges to compare academic performance in reading, writing, and math. The SAT is scored on a scale of 400 to 1600 and a 1600 is the best possible result. A score of 1100 indicates that you answered a slightly above average number of questions correctly on the exam.

Is a Score of 1100 Good?

A score of 1100 places you just over the 50th percentile of all students in the country. After earning an 1100, you’ll be able to apply to most colleges and universities as a decent candidate. More selective and elite institutions require higher scores for competitive consideration, but outside of those a score of 1100 meets expectations.

I Want to Go to College, What Do I Do?

Review your colleges and universities list and see what scores they accept most frequently. They often are provided in a 25th and 75th percentile. If the majority of the institutions on your list have an 1100 or near there as their 75th percentile, it means that you’re likely a good candidate for acceptance. If your SAT score is closer to their 25th percentile or below, it would be worthwhile to retake the exam, especially if you’re still in your junior year.

The College Board recommends six to eight weeks to prepare for taking the exam again. In that time, complete a few practice tests by obtaining a book of sample SATs or by visiting the free SAT practice website. If there’s enough time, sign up for a test prep class offered by your high school or hire a tutoring service specializing in SAT preparation. Improving your score by even 100 points can increase your competitiveness as an applicant exponentially.

As for seniors, now is the time to ensure that the rest of your application is as marketable as it can be. Because a score of 1100 provides many college options to choose from, a great personal essay or list of after school activities can be immensely helpful in getting accepted to your first choice. Set aside time to compose a persuasive essay and have your college counselor read it over to offer a critique. Also, reach out to the teachers who made an impact on your high school career and ask them to compose a letter of recommendation.

What Colleges Can I Apply to With a Score of 1100?

There are a sizable number of colleges and universities where an SAT score of 1100 is competitive and we’ve assembled a list of them below. Remember no SAT score by itself guarantees admission, but all of these institutions have established a precedent of accepting students with scores of 1100.
