How much does Junior year matter?

I am half way through my Junior year and have dropped a solid 5-6 percentage points from hard classes. I want to know if they will factor in my consistent 2 year 98% averages with my so far 92%, or if they look at my junior year and call it a day?

How do colleges weight GPA?

At my school, weighted GPA is on the scale: AP: 6.0, Honors: 5.0, Regular: 4.0. We also have an "Academic Core" GPA which is: AP: 5.0, Honors: 4.5, Regular: 4.0. Which, if any, do colleges use?
