Ranking of Colleges by SAT Scores (25th Percentile) 2012-2013

Below is a ranking of the College Admissions 100 Top 50 Colleges by 25th percentile SAT Scores for 2012-2013. This means that 25% of applicants scored at or below this score. Or, another way of looking at it is that 75% of successful applicants (the vast majority) scored above this score.

For example, suppose that John has a cumulative SAT score of 1700. He is thinking of applying to Brandeis, which has a 25th percentile SAT score of 1850. Using this information, he can infer that the vast majority of accepted applicants had higher scores than this. It doesn’t mean he should not apply to Brandeis, since a quarter of accepted applicants had lower scores. But it does mean that he could have a tough time getting in.
