    Congrats! Western WA is an option for my daughter as well. It is certainly a great value for us since we are in state. It also is a beautiful campus (if you haven’t had the chance to visit).

    @Nhatrang I think you posted to the wrong thread. This thread is for parents of kids with GPAs 3.0- 3.4. I think this translates into the mid 80's using the 100 point scale you mentioned. No one here is applying the anything like Ivies and probably UMich is even out of reach for this group. Most here also don't have anything near the number of APs you mentioned.

    @Nhatrang, no worries—it can get confusing.

    Might work better for you!

    To answer what I think you are asking, colleges aren’t going to directly compare your dd’s grades to those where kids are graded on a different scale. They really can’t. Some schools grade on a 100 pt scale. Some grade with 90-100 being an A. At some 93-100 is an A, etc. Don’t worry about that part. You guidance counselor should be telling the colleges (as part of their report or the profile sent) what kind of scale yours grades on.

    If it helps at all for fun though, you can plug the grades from every year into raise.me and they will give you what they consider the unweighted grade will be on a 4.0 scale.

    @natty1988 Congratulations

    @JBSeattle nice. It is always refreshing to hear of institutions having it together. There are so many moving parts, I suppose it is a challenge to organize student overnights and class visit. Well done Ohio Wesleyan.
