Alright, so I was accepted to San Diego State University for fall 2021, but I have a few questions.
Let’s say I complete the “Intent to Enroll” and I submit my transcripts from my high school (located in Pennsylvania)…
My GPA in my high school transcripts is different than my GPA given/calculated on the CSU Application, and SDSU states that the GPA has to be maintained and cannot drop, or else my application could be withdrawn. I know I asked this question before on here, but will my admission be canceled if they see this difference in GPA? (my CSU GPA was 3.91, and my school one is 3.836 unweighted)
Secondly: apparently Honors courses in other high schools outside of California do not count as honors courses on the application. I took English II Honors and Spanish IV Honors and put them down as honor classes on my application when stating what type of class it was. So like, am I screwed?
I also put that my school uses a semester and yearly grading system because my school has classes that are only 1 semester and do not continue into the second semester. Like Spanish 1 was in the first semester but does not continue onto the second semester, and Spanish 2 was in the second semester. But we also have classes that are full year, like Psychology AP or English Lit/Comp AP. I mean, I should be fine right? Yeah, I think.
I mean that’s all I’ve got really. Not going to lie, this whole application for colleges in California is kind of confusing. I don’t get why they do not just ask for the GPA that your school gives you, but instead, calculate their own GPA. And why the heck do honors courses outside of California not really count as honors courses.
