I ended my freshman year with a 3.4 unweighted GPA, taking two honors classes.
My sophomore year I took two APs and two Honors and got something like a 3.95 unweighted, along with 5's on both APs.
My junior year was very similar, although my GPA dropped just a little bit to a 3.89 unweighted. I took 3 AP's as well as sophomore Calculus at Georgetown.
I'm a rising 2011 senior and I'm hoping that my freshman year grades don't cost me admission into any of the schools I'm applying to. I have a 2280 SAT and a 35 Composite ACT.
The schools that I'm considering applying to are:
Stanford (loooong reach)
I'm sure I'll keep my senior grades up but somebody please tell me if my freshman year is going to be possibly be detrimental to what I think is a decent resume?
