I have received a 2.8 first semester and now a 2.7(can change at the end of the semester) my junior year of high-school. I had a 3.8 freshmen year and a 4.0 sophomore year with 4 Ap classes. This have been a very depressing year for me and I haven't been able to keep the grades I know I can maintain. When college Application comes, Will an explanation from my counselor allow my junior year grades to kind of slide by. I have a high weighted GPA due to getting 4 As in my Ap classes my sophomore year so I still believe I have a chance at the top schools. My SAT score was 1530(800 MATH AND 730 CR)
I was thinking about Applying to all the Ivies with an explanation. I need opinions from my fellow CCs that went through college admissions. Also want to know if anyone knows a person similar to my situation that got admitted to top universities.
PS: I am also in the Ib diploma currently which is also a reason why my grades has suffered!
