# GPA conversion for Johns Hopkins?

I've been looking into applying to Johns Hopkins, but I'm a little confused about their GPA calculation. Is there a calculator or something that can help me convert my current GPA to the one that they use? Thanks in advance!

Johns Hopkins University evaluates GPAs on a 4.0 scale, so you may need to convert your GPA if it is calculated on a different scale. It's important to note that colleges typically recalculate your GPA for their own review process, as they want to consider a consistent metric for all applicants, taking into account the rigor of coursework and other factors.

To assist with your GPA conversion, you can follow these basic guidelines:

1. If your high school uses a 5.0 scale, divide your current GPA by 1.25 to convert it to a 4.0 scale.

2. If your high school uses percentage grades, divide your percentage by 25 and then subtract 1. For example, if your high school GPA is 85 percent, the 4.0 GPA equivalent would be (85/25) - 1 = 2.4.

3. If your high school uses a weighted 6.0 scale, divide your current GPA by 1.5 to convert it to a 4.0 scale.

Keep in mind that Johns Hopkins, like many other colleges, will evaluate your application holistically. Your GPA is just one factor in their admissions process, and they will also carefully consider the rigor of your coursework, test scores (if you choose to submit them), extracurricular activities, essays, and other aspects of your application.

As long as your GPA is within the range of accepted students, you will have a realistic shot at admission. For reference, accepted students at Johns Hopkins typically have an average unweighted GPA of 3.9 and above. The closer your GPA is to this range, the better shot you have at being competitive in the admissions process.
