Keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed, and remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers at most of these Colorado colleges, especially the top Colorado colleges, will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Some students with higher scores (but a weaker application) are not admitted, while some with lower scores (but a stronger application) are admitted.
