How important are test scores? How will my test scores be used?

QuestBridge -

Test scores are not everything. All of our college partners, as well as QuestBridge staff, read your entire application and base their admissions decisions on your application as a whole, not only your SAT or ACT scores. If your scores are not strong, your QuestBridge application won't be disregarded. Rather, your application reader will look at all of the other portions of the application to determine if you would be able to handle the academic rigor of a top-tier college. Application readers will also judge your academic preparedness based on teacher and counselor recommendations, transcript, and essays. If you aren't satisfied with your scores, you can demonstrate your thinking and writing skills by devoting extra effort to your essays.
