Is it a good GPA?

I have a 3.77 weighed gpa, is that good? What would it be unweighted? Could I get into any competitive school with that gpa?

Thank you!

What it would be unweighted depends on how many APs and honors you've taken and what grade you've gotten on each :)

For your college admission, your unweighted GPA matters a lot. Most competitive schools look for an almost perfect GPA. You have a pretty good GPA. However, KEEP WORKING HARD you are on the right path!

If your GPA is 3.77 weighted, that is not outstanding for top colleges. You would have to ask your school for your unweighted, because every school is different. If your GPA unweighted is a 3.5+, these schools are good matches for you:

Yeshiva University Private New York Mid East

University of Miami Private Florida Southeast

Bucknell University Private Pennsylvania Mid East

University of California-Santa Cruz Public California Far West

St Lawrence University Private New York Mid East

A 3.77 GPA is great and you should be able to get into some pretty good colleges with that GPA. Keep up the good work.:)
