Washington D.C. is home to some of the top universities in the country, and many of the schools have highly selective admissions. To help you determine if your test scores are on target for your top choice Washington D.C. schools, the table below can help guide you. The SAT scores in the table are 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 District of Columbia colleges. If your scores are slightly below the range presented in the table, don't lose all hope -- remember that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed.
It's also important to put the SAT in perspective. The exam is just one part of the application, and a strong academic record is even more important than test scores. Many of the colleges will also be looking for a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
