I've been hearing different things regarding this, so I thought I'd ask here.
Will your senior GPA play a role in being accepted to college? I know that it won't play a major role, since most courses are work in progress when you apply, but will it help you a little bit? I'm actually a bit clueless when it comes to the application process - do the semester grades get sent to the schools when you apply?

Schools will request first semester (or trimester) grades and they will factor into your GPA.

I've read from a few former adcom books that sometimes the senior GPA can tip the scales in favor or not.. continue to work hard..

I agree with the other posters but it will depend on the school whether or not they want your first semester grades. Your senior grades may factor in for scholarships and high school honors. But one of the biggest things that kids don't know or maybe don't think of is that once you're accpeted to a college, many want you to keep a certain Sr. year GPA to maintain your acceptance. (ie. 3.0 unweighted, yes I said unweighted, GPA senior year) In the case of Berkley, they want a 3.0 each semester your senior year. Some schools may allow a little lower GPA. So it is important to keep up your senior grades. Several of my son's friends let their first semester grades slide not realizing this and luckily made up their gpa second semester but that wasn't any fun at the end of your senior year!
