IB to GPA Conversion

edited October 2005 in Cornell University
I'm doing the IB Diploma. In my IB Grade 11 Exam, I received the following:

Maths HL - 6
Physics HL - 6
Chem HL - 6
French Ab Initio - 6
Business and Mangmt SL - 5
English HL - 4

In my midyear, I improved to a 7 in Maths HL and and Physics HL. Does Cornell convert this to the GPA format, and if so, any idea how much I'd get? I've just sent in my ED app. Also, I'm pretty sure my predicted grades are higher by a point in English and Business and probably chem and maybe only a 6 in maths.

    the 4's gona hurt ya.... how are your SAT scores?
    all the admission officers I talked to said they'd like to see 5+ IB scores (ivies, jhu, barnard, and waterloo) I'd suggest you to drop english to SL since university rarely care if you have 3 vs 4 HL (unles you reli love english) and most people agree that math phys and chem are the hardest IB HL classes. (soooo jealous that your school offers bussiness)
