Need help with college lists.
I sorta dug myself into a hole here. i have a decent sat score of 1520 but a horrible unweighted gpa of 3.5. I think my weighted gpa is around 3.8 but I'm not too sure since I'm getting conflicting answers on whether honors are on a 5.0 scale or 4.5 scale. I've been looking at some college match websites but I don't think they are too accurate. For example, Naviance says that UChicago is a match for me since my sat score fits within its last year freshman admittance profile. Since I've heard that GPA is way more important than SAT scores. I'm wondering which colleges should be my match and safeties? California schools are appreciated but out of states shouldn't be a problem.16 replies
