    I applied a while ago, you need to do the SATs or ACTs in order to apply. Most colleges accept 1600-1700 (average) but 1800+ is what you want to be aiming for, Harvard for example has an average SAT score of 2000 (6% are admitted) I believe and plenty of funding available

    What subjects are you looking at? What are you extra curricular activities? If you have a sporting background you'll do better.
    This is completely inaccurate.

    The majority of top schools have average scores of 2200+

    Less than 25% of students have less than that.

    Yes, very much agreed. My mid-ranked school has a middle 50% range of 2000 to 2200, more or less. And the 25% that are below 2000 probably have some reason other than academics for being admitted.

    SAT scores need to be very high, yes. However, the Ivy League system is very abstract with its selection process. There isn't necessarily a "standard" applicant. Majority of Ivy League colleges do accept those with high SAT scores, AP scores, etc., but their have been people who achieve a less than that and have still gotten offers. It all comes down to passion.

    Hope this helps!!!
