Whether you should submit your SAT scores depends on the average scores of admitted students at the specific colleges or universities to which you're applying. Different schools have different score expectations, and it's important to consider the context of the institution.

In general, a 1500 SAT score is a strong score and should be competitive at many schools. However, some highly selective institutions may have higher average scores for admitted students.

If your score is significantly below the average at a school, you might consider not submitting it, especially if the school has a test-optional policy.

To find out what's considered average at a school vs what isn't, I would recommend that you consult the common data set that each college releases to see where their middle 50% lands. If you are within that range or better, I would recommend submitting it but if you are very below that range, consider going test-optional. A 1500 is a great score and you should have no problem submitting it to most schools. Just stay informed and good luck!

Hope this helps!

Awesome score! Likewise, I would say check out the average scores of the schools you are applying to and compare. If you are applying to "normal" (non-Ivy) schools, I would say definitely submit it. If you are in the higher end of above the average score of the school, it is to your advantage.
