I know that I will not have a 4.0 unweighted GPA and I'm kind of scared about that. It will probably end up being around a 3.9x. (x being some number between one and 9). My weighted GPA will definately be a lot higher (though i know MIT unweights GPA's). I'm only in my soph year right now, and i got a b the first semester freshman year (other than that all A's, and second sem all A's). This year I might get a B this semester, but hopefully all A's next semester. Hypothetically, let's say that I get a B in one class in one semester per year. So, overall 4 B's. Will this bring down my chances a lot? And the B's will most likely be in Honors/AP classes (english is what i'm worried about). I come from a slightly above average school, and I'm taking the hardest work load I can.
