The maximum unweighted GPA you can achieve by the end of first semester senior year when you need to apply to colleges is a 3.83 - if you get straight A's from here on out. If you can get more A's and B+'s and score a 3.5 in upcoming years, you can raise your GPA to a 3.47.

If you can raise future semester GPA's to a 3.5, you can raise your total GPA to a 3.44.
