What if I'm not in the top 5%, but I am in the top 10%?
Yeah so I was lazy freshman year and got a couple of Bs, but I took 2 APs in sophomore year and 6 in junior year and got straight As with five 5s and 3 4s. My SAT score is 2250 (780 M, 670 R, 800 W) and my SAT II scores are 800 chem, 780 math II, and 750 bio (M). Because of my AP scores I'm a national AP scholar so obviously I've changed my ways, but because of my horrible laziness freshman year, my class rank will probably be somewhere between 7 and 10 out of about 200. I know this is still the top 5%, but what if I am ranked at, say, 12 or 13? My class is ULTRA competitive compared to previous graduating classes at my high school...will the admission officers know this somehow? My gpa is about a 94. Obviously you'd have to know my ECs/essays to give a sure answer, but I'm just talking academically. Will a class rank difference between 7 or 12 make a huge difference? Thank you!
