I had a question....

Last semester I got a B in English, but it was an Honors class. I had another weighted class and got A's everything else the rest of the year. My total gpa is a 4.35. Will the colleges actually look at my b and judge me a lot(even though it was because of my stupid teacher. Iactually had a 89.9% but she wouldn't round it up to an A)or will the admission people just look at my gpa?

Go talk to your principal or counsellor or someone like that and just ask them to upgrade it to an A. I'm pretty certain that 0.1% is well within error range and no teacher can grade a student to within 0.1% of what they're actually at. Besides, one B won't harm your chances. I can't imagine you'd get denied admission because of that.
