Hello pit.

Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering how my SAT scores are. I've researched a bit, and I can't really figure out how they are in the grand scheme of things.

Critical Reading - 570 72% percentile
Math - 490 41% percentile
Writing - 520 59% percentile
Multiple Choice 52 (score range: 20-80)
Essay 8 (score range: 2-12)

And how did everyone else score on theirs?

I don't remember off the top of my head what my scores were.... Except my overall percentile, which was 89% I do believe.

Oh, and I got 29 on a practice ACT if that helps. Aiming to get 32 or above....

It's about average, I think. They should be fine to get you into college, assuming your GPA is good.

I would tell you how well you did but you wouldn't be able to grasp the numbers I give you.

Is this just an excuse to post your scores? Really, they're not so good that you should brag.

Pretty self explanatory

You did better than 72% of test takers in critical reading, 41% in math and 59% in the writing.

How do you compare in terms of college application? Probably not good enough for any top 50 ranked school.

For reference I scored a 1490 on the old SAT (and a 690 on the SATII writing), which would translate to about a 2200 on the new SAT and I got rejected from every top 10 school I applied to.

Depends on where you want to go to college.

In Georgia, our two top public schools require around a 1250 combined score of Math and Critical Reading (When I was applying for college, they didn't use the essay yet).

I scored a 1330 on those two sections combined and got in early to UGA...

But your scores should get you into most less competitive schools. Hope I helped.
Please don't confront me with my failures. I had not forgotten them.

Meh, i doubt that had anything to do with your SAT score. What was your GPA, and did you have many extra-curriculars?

I mean, I was a decent student, took two years of college courses while I was in HS, and took nothing but honors and AP courses my freshman and sophomore year of HS. I mean, I was always an A to A- student, and got the occasional B+. I didn't to a lot of ECs though. I mean, I played guitar? Did a few service projects here and there, etc.

Go to a Community College and then transfer. It's cheaper... and if you change your major early on then you won't have wasted a ridiculous amount of money. Community Colleges are pretty lenient about SAT scores, and if you do well at a school, your transfer school won't give you too much hassle.

I really think community college is just about the best choice out of highschool. It's like college with training wheels.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

yeah that route makes a lot of sense for some people, but overall I think the quality of your education at a cc doesn't quite compare to what you would get at a 'four year college'. if you're really struggling to get the money you need, that's a good idea, but overall I wouldn't suggest it. I would put the value of the experience of moving away from your home and out on your own and learning to be independent equal to learning the coursework. of course, you reap what you sow. CC's in cali don't require that you even take the SAT.

i got a 800 math, 750 writing, 700 reading.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

They probably check National Honors Society and other 'high and mighty' ECs... which is why I'm definitely not getting into the top 10.

Funny thing about NHS, it was very easy to be inducted at my school as we had a very small student body and my grades and ECs, etc. were all more than qualified, but I was simply too lazy to do the application. At the time I really had no idea that people actually made a big deal of it. Half of my class was inducted and plenty of them were mediocre. When my parents asked me why I wasn't a member and I told them b/c I didn't feel like doing the application they threw a ****fit and went on about how big a deal it is at normal HS. I know what you mean though, I was actually a pretty good student, I went to a HS on this really liberal college campus (it was an "academically advanced" HS), but opted to spend my time smoking pot than doing math club, science olympiad or anything like that.

Haha and then I got rejected from all the top 10 schools I applied to, though some of them I will admit that I had zero interest of going to (I have a hard time believing that people actually want to go places like University of Chicago, I don't care how many nobel laureates they've put out, I've never seen more neurotic, unhappier looking students before in my life). Oh were my parents ecstatic...
