I’m trying to boost my GPA from a 3.6 to 4.0. What elective or even core classes would help boost that gpa?

Hi Madison,

Taking AP or Honors courses can boost a GPA. Read my blog post on this topic and watch my video on it, too. Repeating courses can boost a GPA, but the most important thing is to get the best grades you can.

You can only get a 4.0 if you start out with one as a freshman and keep it, but you do not need a 4.0 to be accepted to the vast majority of excellent colleges, so please don’t idealize something that is not really necessary at all!  🙂

Yay, college!

PS–Download my new phone app and that will show you each task you need to do each year of HS to get into the best possible college. There are quite a few mentions of GPA in the phone app!
