      Do your grades in high school or the SAT/ACT effect anything when you go to college? And if so how bad?

      Hi kohakuyori – Your scores on standardized tests like the SAT and ACT only affect you during the admissions and financial aid processes. Many colleges look at applications as a whole, so it is difficult to say how much they impact the decision. Colleges are wary to give a solid minimum score because they want as many applicants to choose from as possible. So if you do not like your SAT or ACT score, highlight other strong suits on your application, such as extracurricular involvement or a very strong personal essay.
