I just got back my score from a practice SAT test and I got a 1860. Is that good, or do I need to study more? I don't really know where I want to go to school for but I want to know what sort of options I have.

1860 is fine for a lot of places. The ones that'll frown upon that are mostly ivy league or really nice public schools. If you're shooting for Harvard or UC Berkeley, I'd shoot for at least 2000, and for Harvard, more like 2200. On the other hand, if your essay is good enough, most places don't care *that* much about your SAT/ACT.

It's not too bad. As you probably know, a perfect score is 2400, so it leaves room for improvement. A 2030 got me into Georgia Tech, so depending on what you want to study you may want to aim higher, or you may have a competitive score already. What grade are you in, if you don't mind me asking?

Really? I had to write at least 2 entrance essays for every application I did.

It depends on how competitive the school is. So low cost high value schools (or jsut seriously high value schools) tend to do it more than others, I think.

I'm a junior in high school, and I really don't know what I want to go to school for. Probably something involving art and/or music.

Then it won't really matter much at all, to be honest. What was your reading comprehension score?
#15
Average is 1500 (500 per section). I'd recommend taking an SAT prep class if you want a higher SAT score.

Though the SATs are a stupid form of judging intellectual competency.

That's a pretty decent score and as long as your grades are good and you do everything else required for school applications you'll probably have a pretty good chance of getting in most schools.

Maybe so but they are used to see if you can cope well at the school academically. It's more about knowing how to pass the tests and answer the questions properly rather than being really clever (although they usually come hand in hand)

I actually just got my results back too and i got a 2000, lol.
I feel like this is an appropriate place to ask this, if i were shooting to go to, let's say, Cornell University, what score might i wanna shoot for?

Everyone was all about the ACT when I was getting ready for college. I don't think anyone took the SAT. Is there any difference really?

I got like a 1570 or something

Though I have a 4.0 GPA in college.

The SAT is a stupid way to judge intelligence.
