My school doesn't offer honors classes

My school offers AP courses, but not honors classes. Approximately what weighted GPA would I need to get into Wharton?

    It’s most important to be among the top tier in your class- at least in the top 5-10%. At my school, this required a 4.0+ weighted GPA. I’d ask your counselor what GPA is typically in the top 5-10% to get a ballpark estimate. However, remember that GPA is only one of many factors considered for holistic admissions. Strong grades in challenging coursework is merely the foundation of a competitive college application.

    If your school doesn't offer honors classes, you don't need to worry. UPenn will take that into consideration when you submit your application
