Columbia University doesn't formally publish a range of SAT scores they're looking to admit; however, their admitted students typically have very high scores. According to the most recent data, the mid-50% range for admitted students to Columbia falls between 1480 and 1570.

However, bear in mind that the score range doesn't set a minimum or maximum—it's the range in which the middle half of admitted students' scores fall. It means that 25% of admitted students scored below 1480 and 25% scored above 1570.

It's also crucial to keep in mind that test scores are just one part of the admissions process. While they play a significant role in expressing your academic readiness for Columbia, equally important are your grades, AP classes, extracurricular activities, essays, and letters of recommendation.

To achieve your maximum potential score on the newly launched digital SAT, consistent test prep along with timely practice tests should provide you with a solid foundation. Good luck with your test prep!
