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 colleges with 2,000 to 10,000 undergraduate students.

Private research colleges dominate the first 25 spots, with a few liberal arts colleges in the mix.
