If you want to get into a top public university such as Berkeley or UNC Chapel Hill, you're going to need good grades and strong standardized test scores. Realize that these prestigious universities do not have a cut-off for grades, ACT scores, or SAT scores. Highly selective universities have holistic admissions, so the admissions officers will be looking at more than empirical data. Challenging courses, a winning essay, and interesting extracurricular activities also play an important role. In many cases, letters of recommendation, a strong interview, and your demonstrated interest can also improve your chances. That said, the numbers do matter, and higher is better.
