I'm currently a rising senior in hs with generally really good grades. My overall UW gpa is a 3.92 & I have gotten A's in all subjects except for a B+ & C+ in honors precalc & a b+ second trimester of honors chem sophomore year. I took calculus my junior year & got A's both trimesters of it & had a 4.0 UW altogether junior & freshman year.
So I am wondering how much those grades will deter me from getting into colleges with low acceptance rates? (such as u of chicago, northwestern, berkeley etc.) I have also taken (including this upcoming year) 6 AP classes & 6 honors classes & got a 33 on my act. That C just makes me look really bad!! ugh it was also due to awful depresssion stemming from my father's crazy alcoholism & emotionally abusive personality if that makes a difference to colleges.
