    I would also consider forgetting about the SAT and focus only on the ACT since it looks like you are better at the ACT. Only the better one will matter, so unless you think you can improve your SAT by enough so that will be better than your next ACT score, there is no point in practicing for it. That will let you focus your effort and dedicate more time to the ACT.

    My son got into UGA two years ago. He had a weighted GPA of 3.3 and 1780 SAT. He did have lots of AP/IB. He was afraid he would not be accepted. His counselor suggested doing regular admission. I know he is my son, but his essays were very strong and showed off his involvement in school, church and community leadership. He was and is still involved in human rights organizations. So, if you really want to go there and don't have the grades or scores show the university who you are and what you care about and can offer the university of your choice.
    Also, don't shy away from Berry even though very expensive. They have a huge endowment and offer lots of scholarships including paying for college by working for them. Best of luck.

    @SammyxB- Can you update in the next few days? Did you participate in the Match program? Were you matched?

    If not, what was your course of action? Did you catch any EDII's? Or RD everywhere? I'd love to see the breakdown of where you ended up replying and your admits/rejections/waitlists. I do hope you had some success. Please, update!!
