A sky-high score is something that every SAT aspirant wants. But not everybody is cut out for an SAT 1500. It doesn’t mean that you’re a bad student or that you didn’t study well enough. It simply might not have been your day. And it definitely does not mean that you have no future!
If you’ve got a mid-level SAT score (around SAT 1050-1360) and retaking the SAT is not an option for you anymore, then don’t lose hope. There are still plenty of colleges for you out there to study in. And these are not some third-rate colleges that would leave you in the lurch when you graduate. Instead, they do have healthy placements, quality coursework, decent infrastructure and a culturally diverse student population.

Remember, the path to your dream college requires a combination of SAT score, academic scores, extracurricular activities, LORs and SOPs. So if your SAT score didn’t quite make the cut, the way you present your profile can also do the trick. Even with tier 1 colleges.
