    I am in the IB Diploma Program, and will earn my full diploma. I also finished the MYP program and have a diploma from those courses as well. My GPA has somewhat suffered from due to the rigorous courses, along with the many clubs and sports I participate in. Does the board of acceptance take these factors in consideration when looking at my application?

    BLUF: The NA is looking for candidates who have shown they can handle a full course load and all the rest - and succeed.

    So I suspect that, yes, they do take the rigor of your circulum into consideration. When you say that your GPA suffered "somewhat" are you saying its at 3.5 or at 1.5. Big difference! They'll also compare your GPA to class standing, knowledge of your school, SAT scores, etc. and judge it all.
