What is my current GPA? When I go to college, preferably NYU, will they accept all these courses? If not which ones will be accepted and calculated to get my GPA? And will AP Courses and College credited courses at my local community college raise my GPA?

    Your GPA, what is accepted, and what is used to calculate your GPA all completely depends on your school, so I would recommend talking to your guidance counselor about specifics. That being said, going off of how most schools do it, your GPA is around a 3.7 (average for NYU.) Taking AP and honors courses will boost your weighted GPA but not your unweighted. I applaud you for being so involved in the college process and serious about academics as a freshman/now sophomore, because most people aren't. Keep it up!!
