Hey, I'm new to this forum, but I have been reading it for awhile, and everything here has been so helpful and informative, so thank you, everyone! But anyway, I've been worrying about my gpa for this semester. I'm a junior and I am taking four AP and honor classes, but my gpa for this semester dropped from what it usually is, so from a 3.8 to a 3.5. I know I can turn it around this upcoming semester and get it back up to where it should be, but I'm just freaking out that this one semster can ruin this whole process. If I were to start the appliction process before I have my second semster gpa, would admissions just look at my application with the bad gpa and say I'm not qualified? and also, if i were to apply to SLS, would they do the same? I think I'm on the right track when it comes to leadership and athletics, but I guess I'm just concerned with my academics. I'm not sure if I'm just paraniod because I've been waiting a long time for my oppertunity to apply, but this is making me worried. Thank you all so much!
