Do you think my SAT score is good enough for my top choice?

Hey there! I just got my SAT score back and I got a 1450. My top choice is UCLA and I'm really passionate about attending. Should I retake the test to try to get a higher score or do you think it's good enough? I'm feeling a bit stressed about it. Thank you!

Hello! Congratulations on your 1450 SAT score - that's a great achievement. While a 1450 is a strong score, it's important to keep in mind that admissions to UCLA, like any other top-tier university, can be quite competitive. The middle 50% of admitted students at UCLA typically have an SAT score range between 1360 and 1530. Your score falls within this range, which is a positive sign. However, it's important to remember that SAT scores are just one factor in the admissions process. Your GPA, extracurricular activities, essays, and letters of recommendation all play a significant role as well. If you feel confident in other aspects of your application and believe that retaking the SAT could potentially improve your score, it might be worth considering. Ultimately, the decision to retake the SAT is up to you and what you feel would be best for your application. Good luck!
