are ACT scores considered as much as SAT scores? For example, if you did better on your ACTs than SATs but sent them both in, which would colleges consider more?

Personally I think top schools really only consider SAT scores. For instance, Cornell accepts both, but only 1% of students submit them

Are you sure about that 1%? I know that in the midwest, most people favor the ACT over the SAT. I am sending my ACT scores to Cornell, as are a few others I know from the area,

Positive dude. Check their website, check usnews, only 1% submit. I hate to say it but they almost seem to frown upon that test. Very VERY VERY few students get accepted with the ACT's.

I don't believe Cornell is the norm, but more of an exception. Many fine schools accept both the ACT and the SAT and do not treat the ACT as a lesser test. They likely look for a degree of consistency between the scores, but as many students find the ACT to be more similar to tests they took in high school, it's not uncommon to see higher ACT scores than SAT scores for the same student.
If you are concerned about any schools in particular, your best bet is to contact their admissions office and ask if they have a preference, and what percentage of students submit each test.
