And for all of those students (but more often their parents) who wonder, “But don’t highly selective colleges value the SAT more than the ACT,” the answer is a firm no. Highly selective colleges value the SAT and ACT equally. If you happen to be from the East Coast or the West Coast, maybe the SAT is taken more frequently in your area. If you’re from the middle of the country, maybe the ACT is taken more frequently. Many students choose to take the ACT or the SAT based on their geography. And that is quite silly. Students should pick the test that they’ll do best on — not the test dictated by their geography. They are valued equally. We can’t stress this enough. And just in case you think the SAT is still valued more (we rarely hear the opposing argument), know that more students in America take the ACT than the SAT.
