The colleges are ranked by their position on our best colleges ranking and thus represent the better schools you may be able to get into and those which have historically accepted a 1200.

Is a 1200 on the SAT a good score? Yes, a 1200 is a good score. It places you in approximately the 74th percentile nationally for all students who took the SAT.
