Over at the New York Times’ college admissions blog “The Choice,” the deans of admission at Penn and Michigan reveal how they consider test scores on a college application.
- SAT and ACT scores aren’t everything, though they are important. Admissions counselors go over scores quickly, and there are no minimum cutoff points.
- In order for your application to be competitive, you’ll want to aim for the scores of a college class’s middle 50 percent test range.
- Academic grades are as, if not more important than test scores.
