Can anyone supply a formula for converting old SAT scores into new SAT
scores -- unofficially, of course.

On the SAT page at Wikipedia, there's a concordance table that
converts some values, but not all.  Plus I don't understand how they
arrrived at those numbers in the first place.

I would like to convert odd numbers, such as 950, 1270, and 1320 into
their equivalents in the new SAT.

Since there is no official conversion chart, you can only use these
links as guidelines. If you like you can post your school and I will
check to see if they have issued a conversion chart. If not, they are
probably using one of these charts:

Did you see this chart?

SAT I, SAT II & ACT all side by side - at Wikipedia
..."Although there is no official conversion chart, several colleges
have issued their own. The following is based on the University of
California's conversion chart..."

Study this a sec and compute the new score yourself by adding both the
verbal and math for the final score.

A program.

You can estimate the scores fairly close with this. 

Hope this helps!
