The scores in the table are for the middle 50% of enrolled students. If your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're on target for admission to one of these Delaware colleges. 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.

Also remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. Even more important than standardized test scores are good grades in challenging courses (see the features of a strong academic record).

Some schools may also evaluate your application essayextracurricular activities and letters of recommendation. Some students with decent scores (but an overall weak application) may not be admitted to a school. And, some students with lower scores (but a strong application) may be accepted.

If you score low on the SAT exam, but still have time before applying to schools, you can always retake the exam and try to improve your score.

Even if you retake the exam after submitting your applications, you can resend your higher test scores directly to the school, and they should take those higher scores into account. Make sure to check each school's website to get up-to-date information, and to make sure they will accept your resubmitted scores.
