SAT Scores and Getting Into the Right College

It’s no secret that the key to getting a good job in life lies with having a college degree.  Nowadays, with record high college enrollment, it becomes necessary to further differentiate oneself by entering colleges that have nationally acclaimed reputations for academic excellence.  SAT scores become an important factor in being accepted to a college that will set your career path on a solid footing and contribute to greater earnings over a lifetime versus a mediocre college that may not impress prospective employers in this challenging and hyper-competitive economic climate.  Here is a table of SAT scores that highlight the SAT scores needed to enter a highly nationally ranked college as well as showing the average scores of students on a national basis.
