Are SAT and ACT scores more relevant than GPA and overall grades when it comes to college admissions?

Updated Smithfield, Virginia

Since a lot of high schools weight their GPAs differently, and since SATs and ACTs are standardized, I was wondering which aspect makes more of a difference when applying to colleges.

Each college weighs standardized test scores, GPA, essay, application, etc. differently. I would recommend talking to college recruiters/alumni and looking at college forum boards online to get a feel on how the colleges you are interested in weigh these items. Also, colleges are pretty in tune with how each high school grades and what their GPAs mean in relation to other high schools. Just do the best you can! You've got this!
