Here's my situation - I'm going to apply as transfer.
I have taken majority of my classes from a community college and have 4.0 gpa, while I have taken fewer classes from a 4-year university and have a 3.0+ gpa. In the university, I have never got anything less than B+, but I failed one class which doomed my gpa now. I had some unavoidable reasons for which I failed the class, but I wouldn't rub the issue cause that will only appear as whining. I do have a perfect score on the SAT now (if that counts
I'm not really after numbers but I'm just getting paranoid thinking that I shouldn't even apply as few of my friends who are also going to apply have perfect gpa. So taking only gpa into consideration, will MIT think that I'm idiot who can't perform in high academic standards ?
