Acceptance Based On Test Scores?

I'm not that satisfied with my SAT and ACT scores, and I would say that the colleges I want to apply are prestigious. Will it make a big impact on my acceptance rate?

I think your low SAT/ACT scores could drastically affect your chances of admittance.

Most colleges want to make sure students won't drop out of their school, and for better or worse, they use the SAT/ACT as a means of measuring intelligence and whatnot.

If you have a low standardized test score don't worry. Say you are applying to Harvard you need to cope for your low test score with outstanding EC'S and academics like I have seen a few videos on YT where some students with a low SAT/ACT score have gotten into a top school. So stop stressing about your test scores rather focus on your EC'S and academics.
