There is a sliding scale for the SAT -- the higher your grade point average the lower your SAT score can be and, of course, the opposite would hold. High school students looking to play at the next level are encouraged to register at Clearinghouse ( they evaluated your core courses, determine your core grade point average and validate your.SAT scores. It is the rare athlete who will be offered a scholarship who is not registered with the Clearinghouse. All D! and D2 coaches have access to the Clearinghouse records. Do this right after your sophomore year and good luck.
