How do colleges recalculate GPA?


<p>Do colleges recalculate your GPA, weighted or unweighted?
Also, please be specific as to which school uses weighted or unweighted.</p>


<p>Some do. Some don't.</p>

<p>For example, at Dartmouth, according to their Dean, they feel they have enough to do reading and assessing applications without recalculating GPAs.</p>

<p>The answer to this question is really school-specific--and also often hard to find out.</p>

<p>Which colleges interest you?</p>

<p>ivies, washu, swarthmore, amherst, williams, vanderbilt.</p>

<p>^As well as MIT, Caltech, and Duke, if you don't mind. :)</p>

<p>Posting on their forums, or <em>gasp</em> calling admissions is a good way to get an answer.</p>

<p>Each school may have its own policy. Some take out electives, some may not. Some may weigh AP/honors, some may not.</p>

<p>You need to research each school for the correct info.</p>
