However, your SAT & ACT Test score is a significant contribution on whether you will be chosen at selective colleges. Considerations are grades in college prep courses, grades in all courses, strength of curriculum, admission test scores, essay or writing sample, counselor recommendation, teacher recommendation, student's demonstrated interest, class rank, extra curricular activities, AP/AB scores, interview, work, SAT Subject scores, & portfolio.
