About the study

The Combined SAT score is calculated by averaging the 25th and 75th percentiles of the verbal score and the math score of accepted students and then adding the two numbers together. This list includes all reporting colleges with more than 10,000 undergraduate students.

The Eastern schools take most of the top 20 honors on the list. Harvard earned the number one spot easily, outscoring the competition by 55 points or more.
