To help you determine if your test scores are on target for your top choice Nebraska colleges, the table above can guide you. The SAT 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 Nebraska 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 the lower number listed here.

While test scores can be an important part of an application, be sure to put the SAT in perspective. The exam is just one part of the application, and a strong academic record is even more important than test scores--students with high grades and below average test scores still have a chance of being admitted to these schools. Some of the more selective colleges will also be looking for a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and/or good letters of recommendation.

These holistic measures can also help make up for less-than-ideal SAT scores.

Note that the ACT is much more popular than the SAT in Nebraska, and many colleges do not report their SAT scores. To get a rough idea of how you stand, you can always convert your SAT scores to ACT scores and then consult the ACT version of the table.

And, if you score poorly on either the SAT or ACT, you can always retake the test and resubmit your scores. Schools may allow you to resubmit scores after submitting your application--check with the school or their website to find out more.
