What College is right for you?
• Reach for the Stars Schools:
-these are the colleges you really want to attend but
you have reservations due to cost, distance, or
criteria to be accepted.
• Target (Bullseye)Schools
-these are the colleges that you pretty much know
you can get into and don’t have worries about cost,
distance, criteria, etc. and you do want to attend.
• Safety (No Sweat) Schools
-these are the colleges that you can get accepted with
your eyes closed and hands tied behind your back.
Weighted GPA vs.
Un-Weighted GPA
Some Schools, such
as LSU, only look at
your core/unweighted GPA. That
is the courses you
have to take to
graduate from high
Many schools look
at weighted GPA

Haynes will use to
Salutatorian, etc.
