What's a Good SAT Score?

They read your personal statement and consider your extracurriculars, GPA and community service. They evaluate your class load (Honors, AP, dual-enrollment, etc.) and consult with your references. Sure, the average SAT scores for Ivy League schools are posted, but a good one isn't all you need.
