January 23 SAT Scores Are In! Now What?

If you took the January 23rd SAT, then your score report just became available.

Which means you are probably having some feelings right now:

(So confused)

For the record, all of these feelings are warranted. It is incredibly nerve-wracking to take that first look at your scores.

If you haven’t checked yet, be sure to do so when you have a moment alone. Give yourself the time and space needed to process the information before sharing it with your friends and family.

And remember: Good or bad, your SAT score is just a number.

Wondering what that number means? I’ve collected our top 10 SAT scores posts to help answer your questions.

      Hi Ibrahim,

      Well done. 🙂 That is a top-notch score!

      While I’d absolutely love to give you a list of colleges that offer scholarships that I know you could get, I’m wary to do so because I am not an admissions advisor or a financial aid advisor. However, I really want to help. So, here’s my advice: do some online research. 🙂

      Do you already know which colleges you plan to apply to? That’s the first step. Once you have your list, then go online and search the name of that college + “scholarships” or “financial aid.” For example, if you were applying to my alma mater, UCSD, you would search: “University of California, San Diego” + ~scholarships — that will return a search of scholarships related to that university. You could also try searching, “scholarships for international students,” and “name of university” + ~financial aid.

      Many universities offer financial aid to students, which you can apply for when you send in your regular application. Also, a lot of organizations offer scholarships that are completely unrelated to a specific university. For example, there is a scholarship for students who are left-handed! I believe in applying for any scholarship that you are eligible to receive. Just complete the application and hope for the best. 🙂

      Here are some of our Magoosh SAT Blog posts on financial aid and scholarships. I hope you find them helpful!

      Good luck with your scholarship search! Congratulations, again, on your great SAT score. 🙂
