I am just wondering, do colleges look very much at the High School you go to because there are so much people giving stats that are over qualified for these top colleges. People from my high school get in to Stanford with 4.2 weighted GPA and 1500 SAT, some with 4.0 weighted GPAadn 1400 SATs. Same with ivys. However my highschool (public in california)ranks in probably the the top 10 in the U.S. well it used but still is in that category. Also, we have famous alumni from our school, does that make a difference, i mean like Hewlett from Hewlett PAckard, or was it packard, (who attended Stanford also), Founder of Gap, the youngest man on the Supreme court today, and more. Is this included by the high school wen they send the transcript.

Btw, how can you people in your high school take like 4 AP classes in their sophmore year don't you have prerequisites or you just sign up.
