    academic 21, PAT 19 is better...PAT typically has lower averages so a 19 is good...even though it would be good to have a 21 PAT, a 21 academic is more worth it

    21AA is better. select few schools place heavy emphasis on the PAT but almost all schools would love having a higher AA

    No comparison, the 21 AA is better.
