i have this prob, but for the ivies. i got a lot of b's as a frosh and for the first semester of soph year, but when i figured out that i wasnt doing to hot, i buckled down and got a 5/5 weighted (i was one of 3 to do so) even though if you just took my semester grades, im one of the top students at my school, my old grades are dragging me down. i hope colleges will see that i am working hard now (most im sure will) but it will hurt me when its purely stats based. for im ranked 34 outa 360, which is gonna hurt me for the ivies, but i hope they can see past those grades. i think that it may hurt people more at state schools that are purely stats based when compared to colleges that look at everything.
