I'm going to do a variant on the "which would you rather have thread"......anyways....which candidate would colleges rather have...
School Information: School does not weigh GPA...so ranks are based on UW GPA.
EC and SAT I wise both candidates have about the same level.
Candidate A: Averages about 730 on SAT II's...has a 4.0 UW GPA and is ranked #1 out of 400. Took about 3 AP's up to junior year. Will take no courses at colleges during senior year. Will be valevictorian.
Candidate B: Averages about 800 on SAT II's...has a 3.91 UW GPA and is ranked #42 out of 400. Took about 5 AP's up to junior year. Will take 10-15 credits each quarter during his senior year at the local community college, which may further weaken his GPA...since the college professors grade harder than AP/hrns. high school teachers.
Which candidate do you think colleges would like more?

Sad, but I'll take the valedictorian.

I should add that candidate B got two B's and an A-....everything else were A's....in fact...he if he change those B's and A- to A's...he would be ranked #1. Also....candidate B took harder classes than candidate A.

I'd pick B

I don't really like either. If B was in top 20, I'd like him much more.
But between the two, I'd have to say B.

Thermodude, you know you are really smart. You dont need people on CC to tell you that. I would pick B.
I love these "hypothetical" situations.
