Are these relatively good SAT scores?
720 Critical Reading
Relative to USMA averages, yes. Are you a junior or a senior? If you are a junior, you have plenty of time to study more/take the test again to get your scores even higher. I would think it would be relatively easy to bump Math/CR up 10-20 points each. I improved my CR score from a 660 to a 740 just by doing a few practice tests the week before the actual test. Familiarity with the type of questions is especially important on the SAT, and the only way to improve this is by doing practice questions so you know exactly what to look for on the actual test. I don't know exactly what scores USMA uses, but for USNA, only CR+M are displayed on the portal.
Yes. The SAT statistics for every college are available via a quick web search. Academics are 60% of your Whole Candidate Score, so keep the hammer down on them and every other aspect of your profile- grades, tests, CFA, sports, leadership. My son is lifting weights in the basement right now, for example... some other kid just got back from his Eagle Scout ceremony, another one has SAT prep class in a few hours... etc. You're competing with them and they aren't standing still. But put in the work and you'll be able to call them your classmates.
WP super scores the ACT/SAT test results. In other words they take the highest scores. So one of the best ways to increase you WCS is academics. If you can take the tests again. "If" by chance you are not selected, you've set yourself up pretty good with Plan B and C
Its a no brainer
Push Hard, Press Forward
Agreed. If not appointed to an SA, good SAT scores will help with plan B. Most big (and also selective) state schools tend to filter out students based on test scores, so its never a bad idea to try and improve scores
