But it would definitely be in your best interest to work hard these last two years, most college admissions officers put more importance on the last two than on the first two.
I applied for Syracuse and got waitlisted for Newhouse as well. My weighted GPA was about 4.0, real was probably closer to like 3.5 or something, and my SATs were 1510. If my grades had been better I think I would have gotten it - something to keep in mind. If you can work hard now, this upcoming year especially, it could open some doors for you. So don't dick around.
what? you ahve a 4.0 and 1510, and were WATI LISTED? How come? Isnt that good enough for Almost ivy league?
I was waitlisted for the Newhouse school, but I got into Syracuse as just a liberal arts student, which would mean I'd then have to transfer into the school if my grades were kept up. Liek I said, my ACTUAL GPA was much lower than my weighted, and I think that's why. Syracuse wasn't my first choice anyway, but I just wanted to demonstrate how competitive some schools can be.
