I've been looking over my school transcript for a while and the number of B's i've collected over the past few years makes me nervous. Do I even have a chance because unlike most people in my school who have selected their courses carefully to ensure a 4.0, I've been recklessly taking hard classes and I'm pretty sure I have had the most rigorous class load in my school.

So basically i've taken a quite a few weighted classes, yet unfortunately earned many B's.
My Unweighted Sophomore/Junior GPA is around a 3.84 and my school ranking is most likely in the top decile.
My Weighted GPA is a 4.5.
So I was wondering how the MIT adcoms would like at my transcript. Is this acceptable?
