I got an unofficial transcript sent out via e-mail from my alma mater, Montgomery High School in Skillman, NJ.
It’s an interesting record. I’m still shocked I got into the University of Chicago with it.
My worst complete grade was a C- in Graphic Arts I as a freshman. I enjoyed the class, it didn’t mean I was good at it.
I definitely wasn’t an English superstar with a B-, C, B and C over 4 years. AP English was a very tough class. I think I was better off not in Honors English like I was in Junior year.
I did do very good in gym/Phys Ed A, A+, A and A.
My German grades were pretty meh, and I don’t know it well now even though I started in 7th grade and took 6 years total: B, C+, B-, and B-.
I guess it makes sense as a future Political Science major and almost History double major that I got an A-, A-, A and A- in history.
And considering I applied to a Chicago as a physics major my science grades were just ok: B, B, B+, and B- and B (Senior Year I took AP Chemistry and Physics).
And I was very good at math and even got a 750 in math on the SAT. But I think I just did it all too fast, took Algebra 2 and Geometry in 8th grade. And then had a terrible teacher in Math Analysis/Pre-Calc, and got a C+ as a freshman, and a C in AB Calculus as a sophomore.
I ended up with a 3.074 GPA and was 42 out of 106 student. Montgomery High School is much bigger now, from 410 students in 1992 to 1687 now.
