Hi, I’m a junior in highschool and I have a 3.4 gpa, but most of the people in my school have 3.7-4.0 GPAs and I’ve been really worried lately that my gpa is bad, but I’m not sure if that’s just because my school is academically rigorous and all the students are high achievers- or if it’s because it really is a bad gpa. I’ve been stressing over this a lot and I’m worried I won’t get into a good college.
I don’t think my gpa reflects my academic integrity because I had some events in my sophomore year, and in this current junior year, that affected my state of being and negatively impacted my grades- and I was wondering will colleges consider this? Also will they take into account that I took advanced placement courses and advanced courses? And finally will they take into account that my school is really academically rigorous? I’m just so worried that this will determine what I can be in life, and it’s stressing me out a lot.
