Does Princeton recalculate GPA?

<p>I heard that Princeton considers only the last two years of high school. Does that mean they recalculate gpa accordingly? If yes, how do they recalculate?</p>

<p>i think Princeton looks at your sophomore and junior year grades in ED, and senior year grades in mid-year report or if you are applying RD. i believe they recalculate your gpa, not 100% sure though.</p>

<p>Yeah, those are the last two years. If you take a gap year, they consider junior and senior grades.</p>

<p>Does anyone know if they take out all the junk classes, too? (Gym, chorus, etc.)? And do they weight for honors/AP, or just take it into consideration when looking at the number?</p>


<p>Can somebody answer us please :)</p>

<p>Please somebody help!</p>

<p>Freshmen year is taken out, last three years are used (in RD... ED is last 2). Academic courses are calculated only.</p>

<p>What do you mean by "Academic Courses?"</p>

<p>Academic as in not P.E., health, band/choir/orch.</p>

<p>So do they calculate it in the same way the UC system does (no PE, Health, junior and senior years only)?</p>

<p>Do they recalculate Weighted GPA?</p>

<p>is this supposedly recalculated GPA measured against others in our school, because I would surely have the highest GPA, i am currently 2/155</p>

<p>Everybody is asking questions, but nobody is answering them!</p>

<p>umm....I think that means that no one knows the answers</p>

<p>its probabbly coz Princeton never disclosed this information.</p>

<p>I hope they include Frosh grades as that's the only year I had straight As and hopefully they weigh too coz I am a Diploma Candidate.</p>

<p>I also hope that they take into account different grading scales. In my school 94+ is an A.</p>

<p>i thought that 94+ is an A almost everywhere, and i am pretty sure that Princeton doesn't look at freshman year grades, otherwise i would be happy too because i had a couple A+ in my frosh year</p>

So do they calculate it in the same way the UC system does (no PE, Health, junior and senior years only)?


<p>Meant to say sophmore and junior years.</p>

<p>Pretty sure they recalculate without freshmen year for the applicants who attend 3 year highschools...</p>

<p>when you guys say academic classes does that include academic electives or only like the core classes? and to poster above what is a 3 yaer high schooL? i thought they didnt count freshman grades for regular high school students</p>
