I was wondering how exactly Northeastern recalculates high school GPA for prospective students? When I visited the campus one of guides told me high school GPA is recalculated and graded out of a 5.0. Does that mean all the high school GPA is proportioned out of a 5.0? If so how are AP classes weighed in the GPA compared to regular classes? Or are only AP classes rated out of a 5.0, and if that's the case wouldn't that make your GPA very low? Because if you took for example only 4 AP classes and the rest regular, this would bring down your GPA severely b/c the rest of your classes would be out 4.0 with only those 4 AP's out of 5.0. I hope this makes sense to you! If I'm completely off with what I'm saying then just tell me how they calculate it. Thanks for the help!
