DISCLAIMER: I'm not looking for sympathy, I'm in a dilemma here and I'm asking for advice. People on CC are quite mean. Please don't be mean.
Before I talk about my junior year grades.... let's take a look at my freshman and sophomore year grades
Social studies: 98/100
( Arabic: 82/100... Arabic is not included in the final percentage)
English:86/100...( ironically my favourite subject... I deserve more ...but in my country having an extensive vocabulary and writing skills better than your teacher is not appreciated)
This is where my PTSD comes into the picture. I started showing psychosomatic signs from age 12.. brain zaps, unexplainable body pains, constant questioning of self-worth and zero self-confidence which rapidly progressed towards the end of my sophomore year. I started experiencing palpitations, my resting heart rate shot to 120, I was rushed to the ER blah blah blah. My mother concluded that it was exam stress. My mother was the abuser(NOTE: physical and emotional.).....it took me six months to work up the courage to ask them to see a doctor but my parents (ESPECIALLY my mother) don't believe in psychiatric help..she slapped me and asked me to shut up and stop pretending because.....WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY?
My junior year GPA on 4.0 scale: 1.3.. this drastic dip in my GPA opened their eyes and they took me to a psychiatrist
Now I'm in my senior year... Ik that if I work hard I can get a 4 unweighted..then I'll take a gap year and get 1540+ in SAT and 780+in sat subjects and 4/5's on APs.I have great great EC's. I will touch on the subject of mental illness along with a doctor's note.
Now tell me how much does my junior year GPA affect my college application?
I've always wanted to go to an IVY LEAGUE.
Please don't be mean.
