What is a good score?

Individual colleges and universities have different standards, and these can vary from year to year. You’ll need to verify with your particular dream school the standards or expectations they are using as guidelines. Generally speaking, the academic expectations of Ivy League schools and other top US universities are well above average. In fact, most Ivy League students graduate high school with a GPA above 3.7!
