What is a good score on the SAT?

By Dennis Schulman on

I often get asked this question and the answer depends on the students and what schools they are applying to. I encourage people to go on to the website of colleges they are interested in. They will include on their website the average SAT score for incoming freshmen. That being said, an average score is 1500, 500 on each section. 600 on a section is a good score but some schools require considerably higher. I recently worked with a girl who had already scored 2230, which is an extremely high score, but she was interested in a special program in medicine and the school she was interested in requires a minimum score of 2250 for that program. So a good score is a very relative term. The goal for all students is to do as well as they can.
