I was wondering if colleges take into account of your schools ranking within the state/nation. I know for schools like phillips exeter, even students in the top 10% are considered really qualified but what about schools without such notoriety?How does a colleges determine whether your high school is rigorous or not? My school is among the lowest 10% of our state's public schools so if it is taken account...would it be advantageous since I've been taking the initiative to take classes beyond what is offered (and backed by ap scores) OR disadvantageous since my "A's" would appear to be easy A's?
