If your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're on target for admission to one of these Wisconsin colleges. Keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed. 

The ACT is much more popular than the SAT in Wisconsin. As a result, many of the schools that draw students from primarily within the state do not report SAT scores. You can view the Wisconsin ACT table and the ACT to SAT conversion table to get a sense of the SAT score ranges for these colleges.

Also remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers at most of these Wisconsin colleges, especially the top Wisconsin colleges, will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
