I made a "chances" thread a month and a half ago, or so, but I just got my ACT results and I've a new question:
My cumulative GPA is absolutely terrible (2.9 unweighted, 3.1 weighted) because of special circumstances; on the contrary, my current GPA is well over 4.0 weighted, and my unweighted is ~3.9 currently, with 3 AP classes and 2 dual-credit college classes.
However, although Boston is going to see my 2.9 GPA, I was wondering if this would be offset by my 10/2007 ACT score--30 Composite.
I applied ED for Boston U, and they were informed of the special circumstances regarding my initial grades. Does anyone know if they consider current grades + ACT score over cumulative GPAs, or is the entire high school record more important?
