For top 20 universities, you would generally aim for a 1500+ to be competitive, but the higher, the better.

It also depends on ability to pay some schools gender or minority status

Or like women in stem etc

But if I remember all of the top 20 schools have sub 50% admit rate if I remember correctly. I’m not saying don’t try to apply there but try applying to some of the top 200 schools but those care more about ability to pay some of the best ones might be UAB UHouston UCF South Florida or San Diego St
