it means the weighted GPA

My daughters final average was 98.13. She had cumulative credits of 19.50. How did they come up with a unweighted cumulative GPA of 97.8205?

it shouldn't affect your unweighted GPA, as long as your weighted GPA is higher than a 4.0 then your unweighted stays a 4.0 (hopefully this makes sense)

If you get all A's on regular classes, your unweighted GPA would be 4.0. If you had all A's on honors classes, your weighted GPA would be 5.0.(unweighted=4) If you had all A's on AP Classes, your weighted GPA would be 6.(unweighted=4) HOWEVER, most colleges count your unweighted GPA.

unweighted: 3.0 weighted: 4.0

colleges look at cumulative GPA's

You need at least a 3.8 unweighted and a 4.00+ weighted

If you mean UConn I'd say a 3.25 unweighted GPA and a 4.25 weighted QPA would be more than enough...

I guess that it would be possible on a weighted GPA system. In that case, yes. On an unweighted 4 point system, no.

If you're going by the Weighted GPA, yes. If unweighted, the highest you can get is a 4.0

In the cumulative GPA AP/Honor/Pre-ap classes are not weighted as harder classes. Therefore if i had an 89 in AP Chem, a regular chem student with a 90 would have a higher GPA. In the weighted GPA, you're AP/Honor/Pre-ap classes are weighted. So that 89 would be considered a 109. AP classes are weighed as 20 more points, and pre-ap classes are weighted as 10 more points.

If your SAT is 2000 and above then 3.3 UNW and 3.7 W should get you into Rutgers

They will almost always tell you if you look hard enough on the application or call someone at the college. Most schools want your unweighted GPA, although many will look at both.

Yes, particularly if that is your weighted GPA; in many schools and universities, a GPA below 2.0 is considered failing.

Well at my school a weighted GPA goes up to 5 and an unweighted GPA goes up to 4. It might vary depending on the school

There are two types of GPAs that high schools can report to colleges. Depending on your high school, your transcript can report a weighted GPA or an unweighted GPA (or both). Check with your guidance counselor if you're unsure of your school's policy.A weighted GPA is going to give you brownie points for challenging yourself with harder classes. For example, Advanced Placement and Honors classes are generally more difficult and demanding than Academic classes are. Therefore, many schools offer an extra quality point that can be added to the GPA to "make up" for the difficulty. For example, a "B" in an AP class may be translated into an "A" in an academic class, based on a weighted GPA. Weighted GPAs can also factor in any +'s you might have. For example, an A+ would be given extra points over an A.An unweighted GPA however strips all these brownie points away and leaves you with exactly what you've earned in your classes. A B is a B is a B, according to an unweighted GPA, and an A+ becomes a regular A. In the American education system used by most high schools, the highest unweighted GPA is a 4.0. (Weighted varies widely).SAMPLE GPA SCALEGrade Earned/ UW GPA/ W GPAA....................4.0...........5.0B....................3.0...........4.0C....................2.0...........3.0D....................1.0...........2.0F................No credit......1.0It's important that you challenge yourself with AP/Honors classes. The weighting can really help out your GPA. You should be warned though, most colleges will recalculate weighted GPAs on their own scale (which is always unweighted).

It depends on your professor's standards, an "A" can vary between 90-100 and a weighted class is worth more. Your 97 is probably an A and if the class is weighted then that translates to a 5.00, if it is unweighted then it is counted as a 4.00.

College prep courses are not weighted, so your gpa, both weighted and unweighted, is a 3.34. The only way to get above a 4.0 is to take either honors or AP classes. If its bad or not depends on what kind of school you want to go to, and remember, colleges don't only look at gpa, they also look at standardized test scores (SAT and ACT) and extracurriculars.

It depends on what college you are trying to get into and is that your weighted, unweighted, or academic core GPA??With that GPA you won't be able to get into a Ivy League school but you can still get into plenty of good colleges as long as you have good test scores and extracurricular activities! :)

For them to even read the rest of your application you must have a 5.0 weighted and a 3.9 unweighted. Even with these grades you must have amazing test scores and extracurriculars. Everyone on the Duke Basketball team has at least a 4.0 unweighted.

AP courses add on an additional GPA factor of .05 for each course. So for example, if you take AP Biology and AP Chemistry and your unweighted GPA is 3.5, your new GPA would be a 3.6.

The average of all scores in school unaltered is your unweighted GPA. If some of the classes are Honors, AP, etc, the school might provide "weight" which would multiply your original score by something like 1.05, 1.1, etc, this will raise up the GPA my several points to compensate for the rigor of the course.

Each grade has points associated to it: A=4 B=3 C=2 D=1 for + grades add 0.3 and - subtract 0.3 Then it depends whether you want 'weighted' or 'unweighted' GPA. For 'unweighted' you simply add the grade points for each class and divide by the total classes. For 'weighted' you multiply the grade point by the amount of credits the class is worth, sum the totals and divide by the sum of credits.

That gives you a cumulative 4.27 GPA, which means you definitely have a "shot." It's a solid GPA, and the fact that you improved so dramatically shows dedication and initiative. That being said, nothing's for certain. It also depends on extracurriculars, legacy, volunteer hours, recommendations, and standardized test scores.
