With the majority of colleges operating under test-optional admission policies this year, some students wonder whether they should submit their existing SAT or ACT scores with their college applications. Many experts advise submitting scores that are at or above a particular school's average midpoint, especially for the most competitive institutions. If you're looking for the average score range at a specific school, you can typically find it on a college's Common Data Set, the College Board's Big Future site or on a particular school's website. We've rounded up a few facts from last year's admissions cycle, which are from each college's 2019-2020 Common Data set, to help you get started.
