I did pretty bad in my Freshman year, but im making up for it. Do they pay any attention to Freshman year?

It doesn't always count on one's GPA...it all depends.

how can it not "always count"? what you make is what you get. period. EVERYTHING you take is calculated in a final GPA.

Not for all schools.

Freshman year doesn't count for state schools in California.

my high school counts certain 8th grade classes on the transcript and GPA. and i'm totally screwed because i was a dumb 8th grader....

I don't know of any schools that count grades as an 8th grader. You might get credit for a particular course. Many schools like Michigan and Stanford also don't count 9th grade grades. However, those grades may be used in your class rank, and many schools do look at class ranks. I would try to get a school counselor to write a note and state that the class rank would be much higher if ninth grades don't count.

it will have an impact on your cumulative gpa to some extent, but showing an upward trend will look favorable.
