SAT scores at UW -- how do they stack up?

Howdy! Quick, but important question. What kind of SAT scores does the University of Washington typically look for in its applicants? I'm trying to set a goal to work towards. Thanks!

The University of Washington (UW) is quite competitive when it comes to admissions. In past admission cycles, the middle 50% range for SAT scores of admitted students has been roughly between 1280 and 1490, with those in the 25th percentile scoring around a 1280 and those in the 75th percentile scoring about a 1490. Do note, however, that this data changes subtly every year.

It's important to remember that UW is still a test-optional school for the 2024-2025 application cycle, so while having a strong SAT score can boost your application, it's not the only component that will determine your chances of getting in. Grades, course rigor, essays, and extracurriculars are also crucial parts of the application.

That being said, aiming for a SAT score within the 50% range or higher will likely be beneficial. But don't forget that other parts of your application are just as important, if not more so, in painting a complete picture of you as an applicant. Good luck with your preparations!
