So I am currently a community college student studying engineering, and am doing well with my courses, extracurricular activities, and leadership experiences. However, my SAT and ACT scores are not good (24 composite ACT, 1180 SAT). Obviously, I need to retake these tests and score as high as I can. But my question is, once a candidate is already in college, how much emphasis is placed on standardized test scores? I've proven my ability to do well in college STEM classes (like Calculus, etc).
