I don't remember, my GPA made me go through the evaluation process. Different schools have different requirements though; my school (UW) had a higher requirement than my sister's school (WSU). That's largely determined by the demand to get admitted to the specific school. One problem with this system though is that it doesn't account for the actual classes taken. I had several AP and other challenging classes, but other students who had taken an easier load and did equally well on the SAT might have gotten a direct admit.
