This admissions cycle CollegeVine suggests that you should submit your SAT score if it falls within 60 pts of the low end of the 50% percentile middle range. For example Notre Dame's class of 2024's middle SAT range was 1430 to 1540 so if you have a score of 1370 or above, CV suggests you submit it.

Williams was 1420/1540 so submit it.

Rice was 1470/1560 so do not submit it.

UChicago was 1510/1560 so do not submit it.

Hope that is helpful.

Good luck with your college admissions.

While your score IS within each school's range since it is on the lower end it will likely hurt your chances to these extremely competitive schools, so I would recommend NOT submitting it.

I would actually suggest NOT submitting your SAT score since it is on the lower end. Submitting your SAT score will ultimately hurt you.
