Freshman year I took no AP or Honor Courses and got straight A's my first semester and all A's and one B my second semester. Sophomore year : I took 1 Honor Course - I got all A's and one B both semesters.
Now, in my junior year, I took 3 APs and 2 Honor classes (I have 7 classes in total each year). My first semester was BAD - 3 B's and a C.... a C! This semester I've been working hard, but I can swear 3 of my classes are impossible and the teachers don't even give out A's normally. The worst grade I can get this semester is 3 B's and 4 A's (I'm trying to make it only 2 B's but we'll see) When I used a calculator to see my cumulative for freshman, sophomore, and junior year, it came out to a 3.74 unweighted and 3.95 unweighted - but I take one of the heaviest course loads in my school (and I go to a private college prep - my counselor told me I was in the top 10% of the heaviest courseloads) so its not like Im getting these bad junior year grades with an easy course load, not to mention I have a chronic illness which is affecting my grades as I've been missing a lot of school (which will be noted when I apply to colleges), I'm in clubs and NHS and NAHS and a teen board. Can anyone tell me if this is bad? Can I get into BU or RISD or NYU or USC or UC Berkeley or UCLA?
