Will a C ruin my chances at top schools?

I have dreams of going to the most competitive schools in the country, but I think I sabotaged myself by getting a C in AP Calculus.

Difference between 3.7 and 4.0 GPA in the eyes of colleges?

I thought I had a 4.0 GPA because I've never earned a grade lower than a 90 in any of my high school classes.

Do Colleges Ever Reject Overqualified Applicants?

This may be a ridiculous question, but I'm wondering whether colleges ever reject students whose test scores and GPA are well above their average range?

Do some colleges ignore grades from freshman year?

I heard that certain colleges disregard your academic performance in 9th grade and just look at 10th and 11th grade. Is this true? If so, which colleges do it?

High GPA but low SAT for UNC?

I have looked into the college I want to go to (UNC Chapel Hill, in-state student), and I have noticed that my GPA is above their average, but my SAT scores are below their average.

Should I bother applying to UPENN?

My parents really want me to apply to UPENN, but I don't think I'm qualified and I would rather not waste my time on a pointless application. My SAT score is a 2000, and my weighted GPA is around a 3.9 as of this year. I feel like applying would just mean throwing away my money. Is it at all worth i...

Drop D-Grade Class if I’m an A Student?

I’m getting a D in one of my classes but As in all the rest of them. Should I drop the D-grade class? Will dropping the class look better or worse to colleges than a D on my transcript?
