Hello, I just finished my jr and I had a gpa of 3.7 and weighted 4.5 in advanced IB classes. My cumulative gpa is 3.5 and weighted cumulative is 3.9. Will that hurt me from getting into a really good university? (I have extracurricular activities)
A GPA of 3.5-3.7 isn't the absolute best, but it's still fairly good, especially if you have a high weighted GPA and strong extracurriculars.
Here is a link to the average GPAs at top universities:
Ok so if I in IB classes, on our rowing team (have been the coxswain since 7 th grade) have volunteered over 100 hrs of community service and in our drama program at school and we put on 1-2 performances per year- that will help boost my chances. I looked at the gpa link you gave me and it seems promising for a good college.
Yes, having good extracurriculars will definitely boost your chances of getting into a top school!
Thanks for your input!
