SAT score for getting into US top liberal arts college

<p>How much at least I need to score in SAT1 to get in top ten liberal Arts college?</p>

<p>Probably a minimum of 2100, possibly 2200 for Williams and Amherst as such. Some even go down to 2050, but I'd try for at least 2100 to be safe.</p>

<p>Actually I would think along the lines of 2250. There is no hard and fast rule saying that getting below a certain score would deny you admission, however.</p>

<p>The average score at my school (international) for the T10 LACs is around 2250.</p>

<p>If you want a really good chance of getting in, shoot for 2100 at the minimum. However, it's important to note that many of these smaller institutions will be looking at your personal qualities too, so theres a chance you could have a 2300 SAT and a 4.0 GPA and they could turn you down. If you've already got the grades, make sure you've got something that sets you apart as well.</p>

<p>Thx for e information! Is any liberal arts college that is interested in recruiting students talented in playing instrument?( I play Chinese instrument)</p>

I think that's very unlikely. I also play a Chinese instrument.</p>

<p>Colleges focus more on athletic recruiting, I think.</p>

<p>I think that some top liberal arts colleges are very interested in students who play musical instruments. For example, Williams goes out of its way to suggest that applicants submit music supplements. I am not sure if this extends to a Chinese instrument.</p>

Oh right I forgot about that. So yes, you can submit music supplements to the LACs you're interested in.</p>

<p>Aim for a 2400, regardless of what you read here. If you think that you need a lower score, you probably won't study as hard because you think you are good enough. I know people with 2300+ who have gotten rejected, and people with around 2100 get in. Aim for the highest score so you have the best shot to get in. Don't worry about what the average is, just work your butt off and get the highest score you can.</p>

<p>Thx for your advice. I just took my first SAT in Jan, but I dunt think I have done well for that test:( Just as you said aim for the best haha</p>
