    1500 is the national average. I guess since you're on a forum of overachievers, that looks pretty bad.
  • nasennasen Posts: 43Registered User Junior Member
    How good your score is completely depends on what college you're planning to go to.

    Also, is that 1500 just between Math and Critical Reading or is that for all 3?

    UMMMM. lol.
    you just posted a 1500 SAT score on CC.
    I congratulate you. You are one of the brave ones.
    i dont even know what to say to a 1500.

    Don't be mean, it really depends what type of schools you are looking at. There are thousands of universities out there that wouldn't look down on a 1500...
    Just because you guys have amazing SAT scores doesn't mean that you should scoff at people with lower scores...

    A 1500 is damn good.

    This. Seriously, get over yourselves, even someone as smart as Databox isn't being condescending (who can own 99% of you guys in stats/academics/EC's/college).

    1500 is fine. If you can improve, it's cool. I wouldn't call it a "good" score, but it's average IMO.

    49th percentile. Average. Not bad (or good) per se, if you don't care for the more prestigious universities. Fine for many of the rest, though...

    It's average. Average is not a bad thing.

    it's good enough, you'll get into college so congrats
    but if you're looking at a really top school, i would consider retaking
    good luck! :)

    average. thank you for being different though..i'm fed up with all those people who think a 2200 is bad
  • aabbcc1789aabbcc1789 Posts: 931- Member
    is that out of 1600? if it is, then it's really really good.
  • MonoclideMonoclide Posts: 972Registered User Member
    I'd cry if I got that score.

    But, depends - Are you looking to go to Harvard or are you perfectly fine going to a state school? Nothing against state schools - I mean, New York has some great ones. But, they're definitely going to earn you 200k+ after college.

    what about a 1460?
    Im trying to get into Rutgers??

    That's the lower end of the middle 50%. Take it again. Bring it up to a 1500-1600 and you'll be golden.

    I'm not being condescending.
