<p>How is a slight downward trend seen?
(out of 4.0, UW)
Soph:4.0 (All A's )
Junior: 3.9 (3 APs) (All A's and A-'s)
Senior: 3.83 (3-4 APs plus 2 college classes) (A's, A- and 2 Bs)</p>
<p>Is the drop from 4.0 to 3.9 to 3.83 going hurt a lot? Or will it be ok on account of the course rigor? The schools I'm looking at are Cornell, Duke, Brown, Penn, Northwestern and Michigan.</p>
