In August of last year, our blog titled “When your GPA doesn't equal your GPA” discussed the varying ways in which colleges look at students’ grades – and the strength of the schedules that produced those grades – in making admissions decisions.
In that blog, we noted that “When it comes to your GPA, the one that’s on your transcript is not necessarily the one that colleges will use!” That’s every bit as true now as it was then, and it’s also true, in spades, for the Florida State University System (SUS) schools that will be the focus of this blog.
But first… what is a core GPA? We’re talking about the score comprised of the grade point associated with your core classes in high school. This is the score you will submit with your college applications.
However, this is not necessarily the score your college admissions team will use.
