I'm curious to know.

    high for me means second tier or best public school (ie UC Berkeley) which is 2200+

    The 75th percentile of whichever school you're applying to.

    2100 is the new 1300
    2200 is the new 1500

    it depends on if you mean normal high score or CC high score...

    2100 =/= 1300... writing = / = 800.

    Me, I like the old SAT. I blow at writing.

    At the high school I would've been going too...anything above 2000 is like unheard of

    At the high school that I attend...anything below a 2000 is looked down upon

    Personally, I think a 2100 is beautiful

    So I think 2100+ is a "high" SAT score.

    2400 - no joke. 2930 MAYBE

    Haha, I may sound crazy but I agree that it all depends on perspective. Some students who are C students may think that a 1600/2400 is a high score, whereas students who are A students think that a 2100/2400 is a high score.

    The reason why I say 2390 or 2400 is truly is a high score, and the number of people who achieve this score is so low that a 2400 would offset a low GPA somewhat (Depending on the GPA). A 2100 or 2200 would also, but not as much.

    Again, its all perspective.

    "2100 is the new 1300
    2200 is the new 1500"

    But a 2100 means getting 700 on each section, but a 1300 means getting 650 on each section.

    I think a 2300 is a 'high' score.

    It depends people.

    I basically have a 1500 but a 2180. I suck at writing and never will be good at it (good on essay VERY BAD on mc). Ok a 690 is not absolute crap but on these forums people who have about a 1500 have around a 750 + on writing.

    yo, just in response to wat someone said b4, a 1950 is the new 1300 if u just do the multiply by 2/3 method, and that would mean 2100 would b new 1400, and 2250 the new 1500. at least thats how i interpreted it. but, its all in the eye of the beholder really

    2500 .
  • PRiSM92289PRiSM92289 Registered User Posts: 524 Member
    2100 is the new 1300
    2200 is the new 1500

    What about people like me who get in the 700s in math/verbal & then 500s in Writing

    1520 m/v & 540 writing
