Unweighted or weighted GPA: Which do I use?

Should I use unweighted GPA for competitive colleges like Yale or Stanford? I did score well on some high-weighted courses so I have a better weighted GPA…

You don’t get to pick one, the college you decide will see unweighted and weighted

Competitive colleges will typically recalculate your GPA based on their own standards, so it’s essential to be transparent and accurate when reporting your grades. High-weighted courses can demonstrate your ability to handle a more challenging curriculum, which is valuable information for admissions committees.
