Is a 3.71 Unweighted GPA good? What about a 3.78 unweighted GPA?

Hi! I've just ended my sophomore year and grades are about to come out soon. I ended my freshman year with a 3.83 GPA, but this sophomore year I think I'll have around a 3.67 or 3.73 unweighted GPA. My school does not do a weighted GPA. If I stay on track, would a 3.7 unweighted GPA look good for colleges? Or would a 3.8 look better? As of right now, I've only taken one honors class, but I plan on taking two honors classes next year plus an AP. I know this may not sound like a lot compared to other people on this website, but my school is very prestigious and known throughout the nation. So should I try to raise my GPA or maintain it for my junior and senior years?

I think if you show course rigor as well as passion for your field, colleges would like it even better. I have 4 honors and 1 AP class done this year and have a 3.7 uwgpa. I would recommend you also take EC's and try to raise it to a 4.0. Also WGPA can be calced online. As long as you take hard classes and show interest via extracurriculars that relate to your major should be set. Btw what field are you entering and which college are you entering for that because it depends on whichever college you are going to. Some colleges in certain field accept 2.9's while some don't even accept 4.0's.
