Hi! The only grade below an A- that I've ever gotten was in AP Latin... a B (tho I worked extremely hard in this class). I have gotten As in levels I-III of Latin and I got a 5 on AP Latin Lit. Will this grade have any impact on admission? Thanks :-)

It shows grading at your school is not too inflated. You probably need to think about why you got the B, to make sure someone does not hit you from behind in recommendations.

Nationwide, only about 15% get 5s, so it should reflect well, and balance the B.

Thanks, Massdad. My class was super, super competitive. There were only 7 of us. 4 of the kids in the class were seniors (including the top 2 in the senior class), 3 of them had one year of AP Latin already. Only 3 juniors... The gc says she's always writing notes explaining Latin grades...lol
