1320 SAT vs 30 ACT

dw1213dw1213 2 replies4 threads New Member
I plan on applying to northeastern University as a reach school (clearly my stats don't fall within their averages) but which score would be better to send, my 1320 sat or 30 act?
Here are their averages:
Sat- 1370-1520
Act- 32-34

I'm not sure if those averages are correct because I've sent different data but yeah.

    30 is a 1390 to 1410 SAT equivalent.
    1320 is a 28.

    Both are very respectable scores, congrats.

    It will be more of a blend of factors - grades rigor ecs and recommendations will matter a lot at northeastern. Also if you have any preferences like first gen or legacy.

    Good luck and best wishes!

    To be clear - the 30 on the ACT is the better score to send.

    Except...they're going to look at the ACT subscores. Considering your possible major, do your subs do you justice?

    Similar for the SAT. A lot of kids on CC add them, but the colleges want to see the individuals. A 780/540 can cause more trouble than a 660/660, if the lower score relates to the major.
