Hello. I moved from a super small and STEM focused charter school where I was getting a 4.0 unweighted GPA with a pretty heavy course load (Precalculus, bio, chem, physics 1) to an incredibly competitive public high school in my sophomore year. As a result, I got a 3.489 GPA unweighted as a sophomore and will receive a GPA that is better by just a margin as a junior. I still put tremendous effort into everything I do and am taking one of the heaviest course loads in the school. Obviously, there are people that are doing the same course load as I am and are doing much better but, they did not transfer. My dream schools require students to be incredibly high achievers and I hope I still fall into that category. Should I stop hoping for admission into some top universities? Thank you! Please be completely honest and brutal if necessary.
