How important are SATs for a junior transfer student?

<p>I've never taken the SAT and when its time I will apply to UNC as my first choice school. I want a definite leg up on the competition which is why I'm doing everything I can to make up for my less than amazing HS stats. Would taking the SAT (and scoring at least a 1700) give me that extra umph I need to be a stiff competitor?</p>

<p>For most schools , SATs aren't important for a junior transfer. In addition, I think anything below 1900-2000 would hurt you more than help...esp if you are thinking of taking it.</p>
