VERY LOW GPA. how badly will this hurt me?

<p>I'm an Asian and I have a 3.46 unweighted, around a 4.0 weighted. I took all honors freshmen and junior year and am taking one honors and 5 AP's junior year (this year). </p>

<p>My SAT scores are in the 2300's during my practice tests and I projecting a score of at least that when I take it this month. </p>

<p>I really want to go to Wellesley but most of the applicants have stellar grades. If I don't have a chance at ED for Wellesley, I'll probably just ED Smith because I love that school equally as much and because I don't want to waste my ED. </p>

<p>Thanks for reading!</p>

<p>Your GPA isn't that low...I came here expecting sub-3.0. An SAT score in the 2300s is great and will do a lot to make up for your averageish GPA. Just make sure you demonstrate a continued passion through your ECs and write a great essay. I would say you absolutely have a chance for ED at Wellesley.</p>

<p>Have to agree with Wellesleygrrl. That GPA is actually really normal. Some people here have astronomical GPAs and don't get in, others have terrible GPAs and are more well-rounded and get in.</p>
