Thank you comment icon Hi Joy! Great question. According to Prep Scholar, a score of 1590 would put you in the top 25% for most Ivy leagues, while a score of 1470 or lower would put you in the bottom 25%. However, most Ivy Leagues directors report that a perfect SAT score does not guarantee you admission. This means that the other areas in your college application (extra-curriculars, volunteering, programs, internships, etc.) are still very crucial to gain acceptance from one of these schools. You can check out Prep Scholar's article here: I hope this helps and I wish you the best with the SAT and with your Ivy League applications! Mireia

Hi Joy,

The score ranges are posted online. But the score is just one piece of the college admissions puzzle. All Ivy League schools use holistic admissions, meaning that they consider grades, extra-curricular activities, community involvement, recommendations, essays, and yes test scores, to determine who gets in. There are no hard cutoffs (minimum required scores) at any Ivy League schools, and there's no score that guarantees admission anywhere.

I hope this helps!
