Is it still possible to get into a top 20 school with a 3.8 gpa?

For context in 9th grade I got a 4.0 gpa and for this year I got a 3.6 gpa for semester 1 despite the fact I had a 4 for all my classes except for marketing. I got a 3.2 which is considered an A at my school. But because I enrolled into marketing class late which is not my fault at all my teacher decided to give me 0.25/0.50 credit even though I made up the past work. My counselor decided to change my class before the end of the semester which I was so confused about and I wasn’t allowed to change my class. The way my school calculates gpa is extremely weird and unfair. There’s no way I got a 3.6 gpa for the first semester that doesn’t seem right. I am in 10th grade.

Do you think it is worth doing the IB program to get into a top 20 school?

I selected my classes for next year and chose to do the IB program. I am starting to regret that choice. I would rather do partial IB. Do you think It’ll look bad if I drop out of the IB program to do partial IB? My goal is to get into a top 20 school. Also my school is an IB school so they do not offer AP classes. I am currently in 10th grade.

Do you have to go to a prestigious university to get into a "good" medical school?

I plan to study to become a #physician after I graduate from high school. I want to attend a "good" #medical-school, but I don't know if I'll be able to get into one if I attend a #public-school. I know that it is mostly up to me on whether I make it or not. But I have to believe that people who are undergraduates at #ivy-league schools are more likely to get into top medical schools. However, I don't want to be piled high with #student-debt before I even get to medical school, which will probably be even more #expensive . #premedical #medicine #premed

What are my chances of getting into an ivy league school?

I'm a junior in high school. I have a pretty decent GPA and I have all A's. I've done a tone of program like internships abroad at hospitals and labs and I'm currently doing a leadership program with Princeton and a mentor-ship program with a pharmaceutical company called Novartis. I'm in 5 clubs and I hold leadership positions in 3 and will be holding leadership in all 5 next year. I currently take 3 AP classes and I probably will take 5 next year. I still haven't taken my SATs but my PSAT score was a 1440. I want to major in bioengineering or biomedical engineering. So does anyone know my chances? #college #college-admissions #college-selection #ivy-league

Does a college name really matter?

I am applying to colleges right now, and everyone around me is throwing around names like Princeton and Harvard. My question is this: how important is a college name when it comes to undergraduate studies? Is it really a big difference whether I go to an Ivy League or another college that also has good programs but is not as renowned? Will the name of the school on my diploma have a big influence on my getting selected for jobs in the future? #college #job #job-search #ivy-league #specific-college

Is it safe to apply to to ivy league schools?

I have hope that I will get accepted to an ivy league school. However, I know that the chances of that happening are pretty low. I am also planning on apply to a few schools that I deem as safe to me since I am positive I will get into those. It's just that I want to throw my application out there in the sea and hope to get reeled in by one of those ivy league schools. Therefore, am I just kidding myself by actually doing that? #college #advice #ivy-league

Does going to a top college actually affect the success of your future endeavors?

As a junior in high school, I am starting to prepare to apply to colleges. My school is quite small (a total of 175 students only in my grade). Although this is so, previous graduates of my high school have gone out to Columbia, Stanford, NYU, Cornell, Yale, and other elite universities. I am in the top tenth percentile of my school, but I am not so sure if I should apply to Ivy Leagues or colleges with much lower percentage rates. The financial aspect of the colleges greatly affect my choices as well. If it is better to not apply to Ivy Leagues, what colleges are the next best thing for me? #college #university #student #high-school #ivy-league #top-colleges
