i'm a junior right now and my GPA, 4.06, is lower than the accepted range of most UC's I'd like to get in. I kinda messed up sophomore year and junior year I didn't take that much AP classes because I didn't really know if I could handle it. My question is do colleges look at senior year's class and GPA? and when I apply will they see my boosted GPA or my current GPA, which is 4.06.
The classes that I'm planning on taking are :
AP Cal AB
AP US government
My reason for taking AP classes is the GPA. I'm not really as concerned about the AP exam. I'm not taking them to challenge myself. I don't think senioritis will affect me as much, but I'm not completely sure. The colleges I wanna get into are UCSD, UCLA and at the very least UCI or UCD.
