<p>So all through high school I've had good grades. I've always been in honors classes and have always received good grades, meaning I've never had anything lower than a B. My school is very good compared to other schools in Massachusetts, but on the grand spectrum, its not what would be considered elite. I got a 1680 on the SATs but plan on taking them again in the fall. Also, I have ACTs in two weeks. My school isn't very lenient regarding AP classes (its very difficult to qualify as a sophomore) and there isn't much freedom concerning the progression of core classes. I currently have a 3.28 GPA (I'm not sure if its weighted because my school has never disclosed it with me and the calculations they use are pretty weird). </p>
<p>BUT, heres my real problem. This year I'm doing well in all my classes except two. AP biology and Algebra II. In AP Bio I've maintained a C/C- average all year. In Algebra II I'm fighting to get a C. Right now its probably slightly under a 70. So that being said, there are four schools I'm really interested in and plan on applying to:
-Cal Poly SLO
-University of South Carolina (Columbia)
-University of Georgia (Athens)</p>
<p>Now here are my real questions:
-How will colleges perceive these grades?
-How will these grades affect my chances of getting in?
-Even though I'm not doing well in these classes, will my grades from Algebra I and sophomore year biology have any influence?
-Will my grades from other clases overshadow them?</p>
<p>Any help, opinions, or input is greatly appreciated</p>
