I take all Honors and AP classes, my GPA is like a 88. But I get like mostly C+/B-'s in my classes. I took the SAT in March and got 630 V and 570 M. My rank is like 100 out of 420. I play Tennis, other than that I'm a brown belt in martial arts. If I can get higher than 1300 on the SAT's in May, is it possible for me to go to schools such as BU, Babson, BC, possibly Tufts? Does it look bad if I were to have 1400+ and a B+ average? Someone once told me if your SAT scores are high they don't pay as much attention to your grades. Is that true, I hope so.

if ur sat scores are high and ur grades are low it makes you seem like you're lazy, which of course isnt good. i suggest working on your grades more than your SAT score b/c it is common knowledge that your grades are more important than SAT.

88 isn't low, I am not lazy. I am just a good test taker. I have extreme difficulty learning didactically. btw my sister goes to BU does that make my chances of gettin in beter?

No. It doesn't. Direct parents only.
