Richard’s Answer

First off, congratulations, you have set a lofty goal for your self and you need to do alot of research and planning to achieve that goal. There are a number of very good college sites two of them are https://www.niche.com/ and https://www.usnews.com/info/blogs/press-room/articles/2018-09-10/us-news-announces-2019-best-colleges-rankings. I agree with the other comments - be well rounded and purposeful in what you are doing outside of school to get considered. A great place to start is your guidance counselor. All the best!

Hi Austin!

I actually went to Brown University which is an Ivy League School. Most of the colleges will post recommended GPAs or average GPAs. However I think that there are many things that are weighed along with the GPA, including standardized scores, essays, and other extracurricular activities.

I would also recommend in trying to find a school that meets your needs and go from there. The Ivy League has a diverse range of schools (big, small, cities, rural), I would focus on finding what you want to go to college to do. If you don't know that is okay, pick a school that meets your other needs (size, geography, etc.)


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Austin,

A strong GPA is important, but Ivy's are also looking for well-rounded students. In addition to good grades, you should have other interests and strengths to demonstrate that you would be a valuable addition to the school.

Best,

Blake

Hi Austin,


College Simply.com recommends a minimum GPA of 3.88 for first-year students applying to FSU. However, Austin if you would like to apply to an Ivy League school like Stanford a minimum GPA of 4.18 is recommended for applicants applying to the freshmen class.

Hope this information helps you Austin,


Sincerely,


Taylor Gall

Hello Austin,

In regard to Ivy League schools I would recommend having over a 4.0 weighted GPA. Keep in mind these schools are also looking for well rounded students. GPA is a major factor but extracurricular activities are also very important.
