The scores in the table are for the middle 50% of enrolled students. If your scores are slightly below the range presented in the table, don't lose all hope -- remember that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed. Always keep in mind that SAT scores are just one part of the application. At the more selective Arkansas colleges, the admissions officers will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. So, some students with higher scores (but a weak application) may not be admitted, while students with lower scores (but an otherwise strong application) may be accepted.

Note that the ACT is much more popular than the SAT in Arkansas, so a few colleges don't publish SAT scores for matriculated students.
