Keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed. Note that the ACT is more popular than the SAT in Louisiana, so some colleges don't report SAT scores. Also remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers at most of these Louisiana colleges, especially the top Louisiana colleges, will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Some students with low grades (but a strong application) may be admitted, while some with higher scores (but an otherwise weak application) may be turned away. So, if your scores are lower than those listed here, don't lose all hope.

If a school doesn't show any score information, it's probably because that school is test-optional. That means that applicants are not required to submit scores as part of the application process--you can still submit scores, of course, if you want.

If your scores are better than average, it never hurts to submit them anyway. And, in some cases, test-optional schools will require scores for students interested in applying for financial aid or scholarships.
