I am currently a senior in high school. I am applying to a scholarship online and the scholarhip needs my GPA on a 4.0 unweighted scale. My school normally goes by the 5.0 weighted scale. On that scale I have a 5.28182. I go in to ask my councelor what my GPA is on the unweighted scale. She told me it was a 3.53. I think this is odd because I have only gotten 3 B's in my whole high school expereince. The rest is A's and only 5 of those A's could be considered A-. I have 23.5 credits on my current transcript. Each semester is .5 of a credit. I recalculated it using an online GPA calculator. My GPA on that was around 3.9 I thought having a 3.5 meant half A's and half B's. This is not the case for me. I have been emailing my councelor and she says that I am using the collegiate (college) scale instead of the high school scale. I was wondering if I should keep asking her to recalculate or should I just stick with this GPA. I was also wondering if this lower GPA decreases my chances of getting a scholarship.
