Colleges for a 1400 SAT

The SAT is one of the most prominent standardized tests utilized by colleges during the admissions process. SAT results are calculated on a scale of 400 to 1600, with 1600 clocking in as the highest available score. A score of 1400 demonstrates academic excellence on all sections of the test, reading, writing, and mathematics.

Is a Score of 1400 Good?

Because a 1400 is only 200 points away from the highest possible score, it implies an outstanding academic performance and makes you a competitive candidate for admission at almost every one. This list includes a good number of selective and elite institutions of learning. Since the primary goal of taking the SAT is to be eligible for admission at as many institutions as possible, a score of 1400 is very beneficial.

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

A score of 1400 makes you a prime candidate to go to college just about anywhere you’d like. If that’s a little daunting, schedule a meeting with your college counselor to get a sense of what types of schools might be the best fit for you academically and socially. Once you have your list of 7 to 10 schools you want to apply to, the best course of action is to keep up your GPA and get a head start on other components of your application, such as your personal statement.

One of the only reasons to consider retaking the SAT would be if you’re interested in attending institutions that are very selective or in the Ivy League. While a 1400 makes you eligible to apply to places such as Harvard, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania, it won’t make you a competitive candidate. An SAT of 1390 falls in the 25th percentile of admitted students, leaving the 75th percentile, or the bulk of admitted students, earning around 1590 on their standardized tests.

As for seniors, don’t give in to senioritis. Since many schools look to see consistent academic performance throughout all four years of high school, senior year grades can make a big difference in convincing colleges to say yes so keep putting in the effort to finish strong. Don’t forget to focus on making every part of the application as strong as your SAT performance, including the personal essay and list of after school activities. A thoughtful and well-crafted essay can help distinguish your application from the pack of students applying to more prestigious schools.

What Colleges Can I Apply to With a Score of 1400?

A 1400 on the SAT makes it possible to apply to a sizable number of colleges and we’ve assembled a sample list below. Keep in mind that an SAT score is only one component of the college application but every one of these schools has a history of admitting students with scores of 1400.
