GPA is 2.88 unweighted, 3.40 weighted. SAT score is around 1850.
I did poorly my first three years of high school, primary caretaker of my sick mother, etc., but now in my senior year I have all A's and 2 B's. I scored high on my AP exams and earned the AP Scholar Award and I'm a member of the National Society of High School Scholars (similar to National Honor Society) I have strong extracurriculars and strong essays and strong teacher recommendations.
According to collegeboard and princeton, they value your essay, teacher recs, and personal qualities more than your GPA/SAT score.
Very important admission factors:
* Character/Personal Qualities
* Class Rank
* Application Essay
* Rigor of secondary school record
* Standardized Test Scores
* Academic GPA
Important admission factors:
* Extracurricular Activities
Also, they have accepted students like me, but it's a very low number - 2%

Here are my AP's and IB's:
AP European History
AP Modern World History
AP Comparative Government
AP Environmental Science
So since I've taken so many difficult classes, maybe they'll be more understanding of my low GPA?
