COVID grade drop
Answered

I am currently a HS senior right now and I've already applied to the majority of colleges I'm thinking about. I'm worried because I had a perfect GPA until the 2020-21 school year when my grades dropped significantly. Remote/hybrid learning was pretty difficult for me because I'd just transferred schools that year and I generally need people around me to survive. I know that this won't be a problem for my safety schools, but for my reaches (Cornell, Brown, Georgetown, UChicago) will it ruin my chances completely? I'm just afraid AOs will see a downward trend.

It will not work against you if you can explain how Covid affected you, otherwise, your chances drop drastically.
