SAT Averages of Accepted Students
Wow, I must really be a nerd. Okay, so I got d'frd at Yale and I don't feel like posting my own stats. BUT I was interested in what scores looked like for my top four schools. SOOOOO I added up and averaged the SAT scores for all students who said that they were accepted and decided to share it with everybody. REMEMBER I might have made some mistakes here so go ahead and check my work.
Here were the rules. I looked only at scores for students who were accepted. I ignored ACT scores and used only reported SAT scores. If someone took the old SAT I, I used the verbal and math scores and then took the writing score from their SAT IIs. If they gave only their total score (and not the breakdowns) for the new SAT then I used it to average the totals but left that person out of the individual category averages. There were a couple of entries that were jokes so I left those out as well. I went through as many posts as available through the number shown for each school in the "Official Early Action Results Threads".
Stanford = Analyzed through post # 206
Harvard = Analyzed through post # 406
Princeton = Analyzed through post # 346
Yale = Analyzed through post # 261
Remember that since these are averages they might change if more "accepted" posts are added past the ones I had available. Also, its impossible to know whether some admitted students were more likely than others to post.
Now don't jump all over me for being a nerd or trying to push one school. I'd go to any of them. These are just the numbers and I might have made some mistakes.
AND...[drum roll]...here are the results:
Highest Overall SAT I Average for Admitted Students
Highest Math SAT I Average for Admitted Students
Highest CR SAT I Average for Admitted Students
Highest Writing SAT I Average for Admitted Students
