Colleges for a 1350 SAT

The SAT is a college entrance exam that tests high school students throughout the country on reading, mathematics, and writing. The SAT is scored on a scale of 400 to 1600, with a 1600 being the highest possible score. A score of 1350 indicates that you answered a large portion of the questions correctly.

Is a Score of 1350 Good?

A score of 1350 places you in approximately the 91st percentile of students nationwide which means that you scored better than all but nine percent of test takers. With this score in hand, you’ll be able to apply to every college in the country and be competitive for admission at just about all of them, including a good number of selective schools. Since the primary benefits of excelling on the SAT is being eligible for more merit aid and becoming a competitive candidate for as many colleges and universities as possible, a score of 1350 accomplishes this goal.

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

You’re well set up to go to just about any college or university you want! If that feels a bit overwhelming, reach out to your college counselor and schedule an appointment. After getting a sense of where you’re most comfortable, they’ll help put together a list of schools that seem like a good match academically and socially. From there, do some independent research to further narrow down the choices based on many factors, such as size, location, and more, but you’ll also want to see how your GPA and SAT stack up against the types of students the institutions normally accepts. If your SAT score lands in the 75th percentile (or the majority), it’s fairly safe to say that you’re a good applicant.

The only likely reason your GPA would fall in the 25th percentile is if you’re looking at the most selective or Ivy League-type elite institutions, which have a 25th percentile of 1390—the 75th percentile hovers between 1540 and 1590. If you have your sights set on this type of institution, you’ll want to consider retaking the SAT. If you’re still a junior, this is entirely doable. Schedule a test date 4 to 6 weeks out so that you have adequate time to study. Utilize online resources, test prep books, and consider hiring a tutor.

Depending on what semester you’re in, retaking the SAT senior year can be a struggle. Giving yourself enough time to study, take the test, and receive your scores before college application season won’t be easy, but can be doable under certain circumstances. If you can’t retake it, though, you’re still in an excellent place. A 1350 is a competitive score at the majority of institutions, so focusing your attention on the other components of your application is a worthwhile endeavor. If every element of your application is as impressive as an SAT score of 1350, it can make the difference in being accepted to a more selective school.

What Kind of Schools Can I Apply to With a Score of 1350?

An SAT score of 1350 means that you’ll be able to apply to a variety of institutions, from small liberal arts colleges to large public universities. We’ve assembled a sample list of these schools below. Keep in mind that even the best SAT score doesn’t guarantee admission by itself, but every one of these colleges has established a history of accepting students with a 1350.
