Can a high SAT and AP scores offset lower GPA
I'm currently a junior in high school. Freshmen year wasn't a great year in terms of coming out of middle school. I had a 3.0 UW GPA. Sophomore I decided that i wasn't going to repeat freshmen year and got a 3.8 GPA. Now I'm a junior, I'm taking 6 AP's and I have a 4.0 and scored a 1542 on the SAT. i will finish with a 3.71 overall and a 4.4 W. Assuming I scored 5's on my AP's, will my academics be enough for Harvard. I know there are other aspects to focus on but could my AP scores and sat offset my lower GPA?22 replies
