There are many community colleges that will accept low SAT scores or accept students without an SAT score. Regular colleges will also accept students with low SAT scores if they have some interesting volunteer experience or skill.

The state of Georgia has a college that will accept no SAT scores and a low high school GPA (Georgia Perimeter).

Many colleges and universities will accept students with at least a 2.0 GPA in high school, even if accompanied by low SAT scores. Check with advisors, as well as college web sites.

Any community college if you have completed high school.

There is not a set score that is considered failing for the SAT. However, if a student receives a low score, he or she does have the option of retaking the exam. Additionally, certain schools will accept lower scores and many community colleges do not even require the SAT to be taken as an admission prerequisite.

community college and slum dog private college may accept you if you score low in ACT. don't afraid my dear kid

3.0 is pretty low for Rutgers, but if your SAT scores are very high, there might be a chance.

Ga Perimeter will. They have a 2-year system & if you do good you can transfer to your dream college.

If you're considering going there, you might want to rephrase the question to something like "What is the average SAT score for University of Miami?" Good colleges are more likely to accept you if you have a decent knowledge of grammar... Grammatical rant aside, I think the average is around 1900, maybe a little lower. But there's no "required" SAT score to get into any college. Colleges look at a lot more than SAT scores; if you have a good GPA and have done a good amount of extracurricular activities/volunteer work but you have relatively low SAT scores, you can still have a pretty good chance of getting in.

SAT scores are interpreted on the highest to the lowest. The higher the score the better you have done. If your score is low, it means that you did very poorly.

Most colleges will not accept lower GPA's, except for community colleges and low-rate. Colleges. You need to keep looking for a decent college or raise your GPA.

Because they tend to over analyze the context when the answer is right there in the passage.

There is a range of Sat Scores for about 1240- 1400+ Sat scores are a big part of whether or not you get excepted in Wake Forest but i know plently of people who have had very high sat scores such as 650, 750, and 760 with GPAS on the low side such as 3.0 and a 3.2 weighted who have been denied acceptance. GPA and rigor of classes is still the main concern through. There are many websites that will show you unweighted GPA, weighted GPA, and sat scores on all 3 sections for students who were accepted, denied, or on the waiting list. Hope this Helps.

Low scores on the SAT, lover than a 3.5ish GPA, low to none extraciricular activities

Pitzer places low emphasis on standardized test scores--in fact, it's part of the "SAT-optional" movement, meaning you don't need to take the SAT at all! Less than half of applying students don't submit their scores, though, so if it's good, definitely submit. The average critical reading score is in the high 600's, while the math is in the mid-600's. However, people have been admitted with reading scores as low as 570, so don't be too intimidated.

AnswerNo, not necessarily. Many colleges have special provisions and waivers for students who were enrolled in college prep classes and can prove they have a learning disability.

The University of Kentucky does not provide that information directly; however, the average range of SAT scores for admitted students (25th - 7th quartile) is relatively low:SAT Reading: 500 - 620SAT Math: 500 - 630Composite: 1000 - 1250

They get low scores because they don't answer enough questions correctly.

it's really really easy - colleagues i work with who went there got really low SAT scores and are not smart - you have nothing to stress over to get in there

A college will "accept" any SAT score that you send because they have no choice but it is not likely that a college with a competitive admission process would admit a student with an SAT score of 1000. There are three parts to the SAT--math, critical reading, and writing--and each is worth 800, it would be difficult for the average US high school senior to make a score as low as 1000 on the SAT. I think what you meant to ask is what college would admit a student who scored 1000 on the math/critical reading sections of the SAT. There are many smaller four-year public colleges and many community colleges that have open admissions, meaning that any student with a GED or other high school degree is accepted. Some of the smaller and less well-known private schools also have open admissions. An SAT score of 1000 would not prevent a student from being admitted to a college with open admissions. In fact, such colleges would not even ask for the student's SAT score. A student who makes 1000 on the math/critical reading sections of the SAT should not let that prevent him from attending college if he really wants to go to college and is willing to study hard to remedy any gaps in his education from prior years.

Technically speaking, no. The Collegeboard will keep your test scores from all test dates on record under your Collegeboard account and profile (unless you specifically call to cancel your scores in the event of a calculator malfunction or illness during testing). This means that if a college asks you to send all of your scores (yes, they CAN ask students to not use Score Choice), you will have to send those low scores.However, colleges like to make themselves look better when they can. (They have to report the average SAT scores of their incoming freshman classes to US News and World Report for ranking information, and they also have to provide data to profile books like the Princeton Review. Of course, higher numbers make them look more selective!) Colleges also like to help you out in the admissions process. So most of them are willing to look at only your top scores. This can be either from test date to test date or even from subject to subject.For example, if you score 520 math/ 400 reading/ 560 writing on your first test but a 600 math/ 510 reading/ 420 writing on your second, a lot of colleges will ignore the lower math from test 1, the lower reading from test 1, and the lower writing from test 2. Some colleges (Tufts) have a computer system that will automatically select the highest scores you enter on your online app. These highest scores are the only ones the admissions officers will ever see, as the system hides all other scores for you.In general, try to do well on the SAT. It's an important test that plays a huge role in college admissions/ scholarships/ etc. But if you do poorly on one section or test date, don't stress. Most likely, an admissions officer will ignore it if you retest better.Good luck.

the maximum score is 800 therefore the average should be half of that which is 400. A good score actually depends on the college you are applying to some colleges take as low as 420, but the best universities like Harvard, Princeton etc accept 600-800.So you should pretty much set a 600 goal line for each section.

Colleges place slightly more emphasis on the Math and Critical Reading portions, although they still pay attention to the Writing part. However, if you have high scores on the first two parts, a low Writing score probably won't hurt you. Just be sure you do your best on the essays in your application, because a low Writing score will cause the admissions counselors to scrutinize your writing more.

It varies. Perfect SAT scores have been rejected from Columbia. Low SATs are here and I know some of them. But GPA are all high. The SATs are not everything anymore. GPA is still a big factor. A 3.6 and lower will not get you in. A 3.8-3.9 is the average. A 4.0 is very common among accepted students. Good Luck
