How much do SATs and ACTs count????

I have already taken my SATs twice and my ACTs once however neither of the scores were high at all. I am one of those people that have a problem with large tests because I always freeze up and become nervous as soon as the test hits my desk. However, I am involved in A LOT of after school activities. I am president of NHS as well as actively involved in many community service opportunities that I have contributed to since Middle School. Seeing that I am going into my senior year I do not enough time to take my SATs or ACTs to a nearly desirable grade.

I guess the golden question is, how do college weigh SATs against other activities that you do outside of school? Yes I have poor test taking skills but am actively involved in many organizations and have a ton of leadership positions. How do the weigh those different parts of the application? Help.
