    Hello,

    I have just received my SAT scores from last month. On the CGA website, they only put the averages of the old SAT. Does anyone know what score ranges the academy is looking for in the new SAT? This goes for naval and air force academy as well since I am also planning to apply to them.

    Thanks in advance

    I think that to be competitive they are looking for 1400+, but do not take my word for it.

    acadmful - timely question - I don't think there is a good answer for this yet. There is a concordance table linked directly from the CollegeBoard's homepage which has the new and old SAT. You could use that along with the CGA class profile published statistics to see how your scores stack up. I have also seen a couple of other sites that have conversion applications (not sure how official they are). Some examples:

    Not trying to hijack your thread - but I have a related question:

    Something I have been curious about for a while. Because CGA will superscore (even mixing SAT and ACT component tests), is it necessary to take the writing portion of each exam multiple times?

    If the candidate is satisfied that they either achieved their best result possible (or maxed the component), surely they do not need to continue to take that optional portion of either test?

    Has anyone ever gotten an official read on this from CGA (or any other service academy)?
