One of my counselors has been telling my class that taking the SAT is generally not important "unless you're applying to one of the Ivies on the east coast" (to paraphrase). Most of the juniors and seniors at my high school haven't taken it or don't plan to. I remember reading on this forum that USAFA will accept an SAT score if you have one while requiring an only ACT score, or something along those lines. Could someone please elaborate on USAFA's use of the SAT? Is it worthwhile to take it even if it isn't required?
