Senior Grades

<p>Does princeton consider senior year grades as much as grades from junior year and prior years? Also, does princeton look at applicants against other applicants from the same school?</p>


<p>I can't say for sure, but I was accepted with two B's on my midyear report (straight A's freshman through junior years). But my courseload was correspondingly harder than previous years, so I think it's likely that they take that into consideration. And I think that they do compare applicants in the same school, because the people who were accepted (with the exception of a double legacy and a URM) were only the top few students, even though other people I know who were accepted weren't in absolute terms as impressive as some rejected applicants from my school, but were at the top of their respective (less competitive) schools.</p>
