Ask Admissions: Will colleges only look at my test scores?
Hi, my name is Sammy, and I’m Charles,
and today we’re going to be answering some questions about the ACT and SAT. So Charles, “Will colleges only look at my SAT or ACT score?” Well at least for the
University of Illinois, we’re gonna look at either/or as one part of the
application process. So it’s not that the test score is the most important part of
the process or anything like that for us, but certainly we wouldn’t ask for it if
we didn’t use it. So for us, you know, it’s one part of the evaluation process. We
also look at your academic record in high school extracurricular activities, essays,
those types of things. So it’s sort of one piece of the puzzle when we’re
looking at applications. Definitely! Okay.
