    According to the status page, it says:

    Highest Math SAT or ACT equivalent: 620, Highest Verb SAT or ACT equivalent: 620

    Thus, brining my SAT (as far as they know, I didn't send my SATs) to a 1240... My actual SAT... 1140. I never sent my SATs because my Reading score was a 520, so I sent my ACTs (25 c, 27m, 27v)

    Hopefully, it helps.

    Is a 1240 (equivalent a good enough score to get the scholarship?

    I guess I didn't make the first board, but how about the next or later boards?

    Just wanted to point out that there is an ACT -> SAT conversion table here:

    http://professionals.collegeboard.com/profdownload/act-sat-concordance-tables.pdf

    ACT 22 = SAT 515
    ACT 23 = SAT 535
    ACT 24 = SAT 555
    ACT 25 = SAT 575
    ACT 26 = SAT 595
    ACT 27 = SAT 610
    ACT 28 = SAT 630
    ACT 29 = SAT 650
    ACT 30 = SAT 670
    ACT 31 = SAT 690
    ACT 32 = SAT 710
    ACT 33+ -- who cares the exact number, that's WAY high.

    It appears that the NROTC version of conversion gives an ACT 27 a 620 SAT equivalent rather than a 610 (per the link) Perhaps the link I posted above is outdated.

    As to your question, 1240 is neither cause for concern or celebration. It's probably right in the middle of the applicant pool. Demonstrated Leadership + Test scores + GPA + Math ability + Athleticism/Fitness + Community Service + Character + Desire to be an Officer all matter, and in differing degrees to each evaluator.
