DO YOUR RESEARCH!!


What college is right for you

What College is right for you?

  • Reach for the Stars Schools:

    • -these are the colleges you really want to attend but you have reservations due to cost, distance, or criteria to be accepted.

  • Target (Bullseye)Schools

    • -these are the colleges that you pretty much know you can get into and don’t have worries about cost, distance, criteria, etc. and you do want to attend.

  • Safety (No Sweat) Schools

    • -these are the colleges that you can get accepted with your eyes closed and hands tied behind your back.


Weighted gpa vs un weighted gpa

Weighted GPA vs. Un-Weighted GPA

  • Some Schools, such as LSU, only look at your core/un-weighted GPA. That is the courses you have to take to graduate from high school.

  • Many schools look at weighted GPA and that is what Haynes will use to calculate Valedictorian, Salutatorian, etc.

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!

DO YOUR RESEARCH!
