So I'm looking at all the admissions stuff here and a lot of the people here have 4.0s. I went to a school for intellectually gifted, I got a 730CR,760M,and a 690W on my SATs (the first time I took it, without any classes/workbooks, and I partied hardy the night before), and I take the hardest schedule I can take.
I also have a 3.35 unweighted GPA out of 4(weighted I have a 5.2). I get mostly B+'s. I have ADD and even though I took 9 AP classes this year (Gov, Econ, Psych, Stats, CalcBC, Spanish, English, Art Hist, Physics), I get bored in class because its too easy for me. I don't study because I already understand about 85% of it randomly, so thats what I usually get.
Are there any schools that can recognize this and not hold it against me? I'm an otherwise strong applicant.
