    Did you get that in a letter from a college? If so, it just means that you scored high enough on the SAT to be put on that college's mailing list.

    Did you improve drastically or something? Like from a 600-1000 to that score? I can see why you'd be EXTREMELY promising then, if you can do that!

    A 1720 is not a bad score. It would qualify you for most of the thousands of colleges in this country. After all a 1500 is average for COLLEGE-BOUND seniors. Most of those students will get into some college. You're options are higher than average. Sure, a 1720 isn't likely to get you into Harvard or Yale, but there are many college sthat would be thrilled to have you.

    Keep in mind, too, that the majority of US colleges accept most of the students who apply to them. Many colleges don't require any board score submissions. Consequently, simply being willing to take the SAT would "qualify" you for admission to lots of colleges.
