How much are freshman grades taken in account by colleges
Hi, I'm taking 8 classes this year (1 elective, 2 APs, 2 Honors, 3 Regular - there were no other options) and I received all A's and one A- in my AP Biology class. How much do top-tier colleges such as Stanford or Harvard take in account of these grades, and do they also consider the fact that my A- was in an AP class or do they simply count up all the letters and consider the GPA?
It's mostly because I've seen crazy smart kids come out of each grade with straight A's and was wondering how much my grades right now would count.
