How will colleges view my GPA?!
Hi, I got my refreshed transcript and I just wanted some opinions/info. I will have a 5.0ish/6 Weighted and a 3.5 UW after the summer. I will have taken 18 AP Courses and about 16 Dual enrollment courses throughout high school and I have pushed everything to the limits truly. The thing is, the majority of my Bs are in AP Classes while I have As in all but one of my dual enrollment courses. I find the college setting much better than AP Classes. I just don't like spending more time filling out useless worksheets and such when I could spend it reading the textbook and listening to a beautiful lecture. I have a 3.9ish college gpa and by the end of high school will have close to 60 credits. How will colleges view this. Will they take it in the wrong way? Have I ruined all chances for top colleges(Carnegie,Cornell,NYU, UNC,etc.)? Also , my class rank will be at least top 20 which is top 3%(High rank due to it being based off of weighted GPA).3 replies
