This is a good question. In general, for most competitive colleges a good GPA is a necessary condition - given that most applicants will have have GPAs. In addition, GPAs vary from school to school based on courses, teachers and class makeup to name a few.
Standardized Tests like SAT, ACT on the other hand, provide a better benchmark to evaluate an applicant - in the context of thousands of other qualified applicants.
As you know there are other factors that go into the admission criteria in addition to GPA and Standardized Tests which you need meet as well.
I invite other Int'l Students and Alumni to comment on this as well. thx
