Ok, Hi everyone! I’m a student in VA who goes to a really affluent High School with tons of AP offerings. The highest GPA a student typically gets each year is around a 4.37. I personally have a 4.0-4.1 weighted I will have taken 9-10 AP’s by the time I’m said and done with high school. And I have some really killer extracurriculars including varsity sports, class rep, pres of Latin honors society, and some really high up county leadership position (I was recently elected as the student rep on my school board) - among other things. I do not plan on submitting an SAT or ACT score to the school (they are now test optional). Do I have a good shot at getting in to UVA even though my GPA is well below the reported 4.3 average. I really don’t know of anyone who has gotten in from my school with my GPA, but my extracurriculars are really working in my favor - I may even be able to get a rec from my school districts superintendent. Any thoughts anyone has would be appreciated. It may also be worth noting that I am planning to apply ED.
