Hey everyone, I'm a rising senior! My SATs and standardized testing are very strong (2370 on SAT I, 231 PSAT, and 790 on US History/Lit), but my GPA is on the lower side for top colleges. It is around a 4.15 W out of 5.0. This means that though I always take Honors and AP classes (I took 4 APs in my junior year this year), I generally get A-'s/B+'s in those classes. I think I got 3 A-'s and 2 B+'s this year but not an A
This is understandable because my course load is rigorous, but do I still have a shot at colleges like Columbia, UPenn, JHU, Cornell, Georgetown, etc.? Or is my GPA going to hold me back a lot?
