Hi, Im applying as an international student.
I have lived in US for 6years and went to a public school.
My grades since freshman year were pretty good
Freshman: 4.0 both semesters
Sophomore: 1 B+ in first semester & 4.0 in second semester
Junior: 4.0 first semester & 1 B+ in second semester
the thing is these two B's were from both Spanish classes.
Would colleges consider this as bad?
My classes were:
Freshman year: Eng1 honors, World History honors, Geometry (summer), Bio honors, Tennis JV, Drama, and Spanish 1
Sophomore year: Engs2 honors, AP Human Geo, Chem honors (summer), Alg2 honors, intermediate drama, Tennis JV, Spanish2
Junior year: Eng3 honors, Pre-Calc honors, APUSH, AP environmental Science, Spanish3, Tennis varsity
-then I took AP Psychology over the summer (online course)
Senior year: AP Eng, AP Calc AB, AP U.S. Gov, AP Statistics, Spanish4, Tennis Varsity
my weighted GPA for 10-11 would be around 4.38
but if I include freshman year, (none of my honors classes were considered weighted...) it would lower down my weighted GPA to around 4.25-4.27?
Do colleges look at unweighted or weighted? what would they think about my GPA?
and my class rank is pretty good since I had maintained straight A's in most of the semesters
it's 30/766 =3.92%
unweighted GPA including freshman year :3.95
without freshman year: 3.91
its weird cuz my weighted is higher without freshman GPA
and unweighted is higher with freshman GPA
