Looking for a GPA estimator for BU

Hey there! I was wondering if there's a GPA estimator tool specifically for Boston University. I want to get an idea of how my high school GPA would translate to BU's standards. If anyone knows where to find one, please let me know!

Hey! While there isn't a GPA estimator tool designed specifically for Boston University, you can still get a general idea of how your high school GPA compares to those of students admitted to BU. To do this, you can look at the middle 50% GPA range for admitted students at BU. The middle 50% GPA range refers to the range of GPAs where 50% of admitted students fall, with 25% of students having a lower GPA and 25% having a higher GPA. For Boston University, the middle 50% unweighted GPA range tends to be around 3.7 - 4.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Keep in mind that BU also takes into account the rigor of your curriculum, any weighted GPA, and other academic factors that can have an impact on how your high school GPA is evaluated. But knowing the middle 50% GPA range can give you some insight into where you stand in terms of admissions competitiveness at BU.

Also, remember that BU uses a holistic review process, which means that your GPA is just one factor among many that they consider when reviewing your application. Other factors such as test scores, extracurricular activities, essays, and letters of recommendation will also play a role in determining your chances of admission. So, even if your GPA isn't precisely within that middle 50% range, don't be discouraged! There are many other aspects of your application that can demonstrate your potential for success at BU. Good luck!
