Ivy League schools (and most prestigious colleges, for that matter) will convert one of your standardized tests to the other one—so a 2200 on the SAT is a 34 on the ACT, even if you actually only got a 29. You don't need to cram for two very different tests; instead, choose which test you feel more comfortable with, and exclusively prep for that one until you can earn a top-notch score.
