What are Boston University's SAT Expectations?

Hey everyone! I'm seriously considering applying to Boston University, but I'm not too sure about my SAT scores. Does anyone know what BU typically expects or accepts in terms of SAT scores? Couldn't find very specific info on their website.

Hello! To get a fair understanding of SAT scores that Boston University considers, you can look at the middle 50% SAT scores of students who have recently been accepted - these scores typically provide a snapshot of the SAT score range of the bulk of accepted students.

As of the 2023-2024 application cycle, Boston University's middle 50% SAT score range for accepted students is roughly 1410-1500. This means that 25% of accepted students scored below 1410, and another 25% scored above 1500.

Remember, these scores are only a guide and not a hard-and-fast rule. Admission to Boston University, like most universities, doesn't solely hinge on test scores. BU looks at other factors like your academic performance in high school (GPA, course rigor), your essays, letters of recommendation, and your extracurricular activities.

Good luck with your application to Boston University!
