Do some schools really PREFER the SAT?

<p>I have heard that many good schools, especially in the northeast and west coast, typically prefer a higher SAT and don't really credit the ACT as much. True or false?</p>

<p>No. 10 CHARS</p>

<p>Never. If anything, it is always seen as equal with ACT, or ACT is preferred. There has been a handful of lawsuits and complaints about the new SAT being crap.</p>

<p>my son submitted both ACT and SAT</p>

<p>The only reason I got into UCLA was because of my ACT score (I presume...). Definitely false.</p>

<p>Go ACT!!! (It's easier for me and straightforward)</p>

<p>I say take both. Colleges don't prefer one test over the other.</p>
