Kind of wish I knew more about how much they mattered or about the college application process back then as I do now, because I likely could have objectively done better with both. But oh well, probably wouldn't have gotten my high GPA in college otherwise.
Same. 3.9 (although, my high school was so damn easy that to get below a 3.0, you had to be legitimately stupid or never showing up)/35. Loved my four years of undergrad, but I could've done better for sure. Oh well! I try not to have regrets because I'm really, really happy with life right now and who knows what might be different had I gone elsewhere?
SAT wasn't really taken where I'm from because no one applied to schools for which it was necessary. My home state requires the ACT to graduate, so everyone took it. Multiple people in my class got 11, 12, 13 on their ACT though and TALKED ABOUT IT OPENLY. Getting above a 20 at my high school was considered amazing, and above a 24 was considered genius.
