So, here's my background story:
--Freshman year I was in the top 25% of my class (horrible)
--Sophomore year I become top 13% of my class
--Junior year, first semester I am top 12% and have also started the IB Program, which is basically AP classes on steroids (7 classes)
--Junior year, second semester I think my rank may have dropped because I have 3 or 4 B's (some low some high) in core classes.
Now, how do I explain this to colleges? Escpecially to colleges like UT Austin, UC Berkeley, Stanford (I know I have no chance, but go with it), etc. Will my chances at being accepted into their schools grade-wsie be severely affected?
Also, one of my teacher two weeks for finals was arrested for sexually assaulting one girl in my class. Can I say that deeply impacted me? (i.e., will admissions buy it?)
