If you're wondering if you have the SAT scores you'll need to get into one of the four-year SUNY colleges and universities, here's a side-by-side comparison of scores for the middle 50% of enrolled students. If your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're on target for admission to one of these public universities in New York State.

Realize, of course, that SAT scores are just one part of the application. The SUNY admissions officers will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
