SAT Scores

Jan 19, 2014

I was checking on some things on the internet and found this...

I suspect the reason colleges are ranked by their 75th percentile is that all colleges have their “special admits” for athletes, donors, legacies, and minorities.  In any case, this is an interesting list.  I was surprised the Purdue was ranked only 207; Marquette was 244; and Indiana University was 249.  Michigan and Southern Cal were ranked quite high, much higher than their football player scores!
