What is a "safe" ACT and SAT score?
The average or slightly above average score would be "safe," but when it comes to the application process a lot more goes into it than scores. So even if your score is not the greatest, write a good essay and show that you're diverse in your talents and your score will be more of a bonus.
ACT is above 21 I believe but I never took it. As for the SAT, anything above a 1600 is above average although you'll always want to go for the highest possible.
A "safe" ACT score would be a 23 and a SAT score would be 1500
For ACT 22 and over, SAT like 1100-1200 that would be great but if you apply as a transfer they won't ask you for your ACT or SAT scores.
I believe a "safe" ACT score would start off at 23. SAT scores may be considered safe at 490.
I believe a 1000 (Math & Reading only) or higher is a safe SAT score. A safe ACT score would be a 21.
A safe ACT score would be around 28 or higher. As far as the SAT's, around 1200 would be safe, since it is the minimum most colleges require.
ACT 22 on math and 24 on Reading and everything else
A safe ACT score will probably be a 25 or higher, while for the SAT around 1300 should consider to be safe.
An SAT safe score would be 1500
The best place to look would be on collegeboard.com it shows the score that the average student attained from the previous year. Hope that was helpful!
A "safe" ACT score would be a 22 and a "safe" SAT score would range from 1150-1400.
A bit above average is fine
