Re: What are adcoms going to make of my grade trend?

Wendy Davis, amirite?

First things first, a 3.71 seems a little low for the grades you've posted. Were some of those high school CC grades for more credits than your other classes? Or are a fair number of your As in lower-credit courses? Or both?

Anyway, your GPA will almost certainly keep you out of YS. Your 4.0 after high school is basically the equivalent of a decent soft; it's impressive, but adcomms are still going to look at your overall GPA. (It's most helpful to you at the schools with the most "holistic" admissions --Y, S, and B -- but it only moves you from effectively zero chance to a very, very slight chance at Y and S.) You have a pretty good shot at H, especially since the applicant pool will further contract this cycle. You're above their increasingly soft 3.7 floor, which is still important. Here's how people with similar numbers have done in the last two cycles (follow the link to the full page and click the arrows under "more info" to see info about each of the individual applicants):

I agree with Ti Malice. 3.71 seems a little low. I'd apply to Y/S anyway. However I think your most likely destination is H or CCN with $$$.
