I am still waiting on a yay or nay from the colleges I have applied to. When I applied, I felt I was strong in every department except for my grades, with a modest 3.0gpa this year. But, the only thing they saw was quarter 1 and half of quarter 2 grades to get that gpa. Well we got progress reports today, and my gpa was a 3.4. I think this is better. Is it unusual to send in recent grade reports for colleges, to hopefully go in your favor?
