Bad GPA + Good SAT + Good AP = What?
*Please remember that the terms "bad" and "good" are relative, and in no way do I mean to imply that my SAT score is amazing, or that my GPA is horrible. Different people have different standards.
i'm a new comer. i came to american 2 years ago. since there's different standard to measure the grade in my country, i got a really low gpa, about 2.7 out of 4 and 3.7 out of 6, and a low rank, last 25%, when i came to USA. I've worked very hard, since then, and improve my gpa and school rank a lot.
here's my stats.
GPA: 3.3 out of 4
4.5 out of 6
rank top 50%
i was a class chairman two year in row, and was accoladed as a all-star student 5 year in row in my country.
is there a change i can get into a top 50 college lsuch as nyu ?
