Nobody cares how you did in geometry when you were 14. Leave it off if it makes you feel better. I doubt most applicants even remember their high school gpa if it wasn't 4.0

Disclosure is always the best policy, especially when it comes to important softs like these.

This seems like a very serious topic. I would personally include it. I would also add an addendum for any suspensions/detention. What if they discover you were not upfront about you talking in algebra class?

This is real life, high school matters now more than ever.

I honestly don't remember being asked my high school GPA at any point in the application process. Schools just don't care.

Like to add that if you ever were turned down for prom, adcoms really like seeing a diversity statement discussing such adversities.



lol, sorry, I was more going along with ood than poking fun. But OP, no need to worry, agree with all previous posters, exclude if you prefer, not a big deal either way.

I took an AR test in 5th grade on the book "Shiloh". I got a 100%. I had a pretty good cycle last year, so I would go on ahead and include the High School GPA.

How does a positive trend in high school look? I started off pretty slow, and only managed to get to 2nd base like once in 9th grade. But by senior year I was really killing it. Does it sort of even out?

Will it even out? It doesn't seem too good, does it? Don't want to get yield protected
