    Some questions.

    I don't understand how your weighted GPA could be so close to your unweighted GPA given the number of AP classes you took. Could you explain?

    Hard to give meaningful comments on the physical fitness without knowing your gender. Did I miss it?

    From the number of push-ups, volleyball, and an award having the word daughter in it, I would presume they're female. Can't be absolute on it, but that's my guess.

    I thought about that and certainly the pushups might be a clue. However, I believe the Daughters of the American Revolution might very well give an award to a deserving guy, especially if he is a son of one of the said daughters.

    Yes I'm female. I can't explain why those two GPA's are so close. I can just give you what is on my school transcripts. My actual weighted GPA is 4.136 and class ranked at 20 out of 436 or 95.41% I am just copying these stats right off my school records.

    If I take my weighted GPA's by each academic year at the end of my junior year it was 4.6 but the GPA summary puts my weighted GPA at 4.136.

    I would say you look competitive. You may or may not get a scholarship but you have some strong stats. Be patient and keep working on plans B, C, D, and E. Good luck!

    okay here's the school explanation. The students with the highest GPA in our school weighted are around 4.3. Also because I transferred from one school district to another I had to take extra classes to catch up so the registrar said that can play against the overall GPA with extra credits being factored into the equation.

    Any concerns with my stats? I wish I could put my PT numbers now especially for my push-ups.
