Keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students at these schools have scores below those listed, so if your grades are lower than those above, you still have a chance of being admitted, provided the rest of your application is strong. Also remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers at many of these Alabama colleges will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Some students with high scores may not be admitted to a school if the rest of their application is weak. Likewise, a student with low scores but an impressive application, writing skills, etc. may be accepted. 

Note that Alabama colleges tend to favor the ACT, so not all schools report SAT scores.
