Does the USAFA recalculate class rank based on a weighted GPA? My DS high school calculates class rank based on unweighted GPAs (which I never thought was very fair - a student could take basket weaving type classes and have a higher class rank). Looking at his applicant status page, the USAFA admissions has his GPA and class rank exactly as it appears on his transcript without any weighting. During his junior year he took a challenging schedule - AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP Econ, AP English, 3rd year French, etc., and received Bs in those classes. Prior to his junior year, he did well in mainly honors classes. My DS took the most difficult classes his high school offers, did well, but appears to have received no credit for it in the class ranking process at the USAFA - at least per the applicant status page. Is this the way it works? Does anyone else have any experience with this?
