SO many people say "a 7 in IB is harder to get then an A or a 5 in AP".. so then how would college admissions look at the gradings of IB on our transcript..

Would 5 be like a B+? 6 = A? 7= A++? 

I'm curious how "bad" a 5 would look on my junior transcript...

Don't look at like that. While there isn't a direct translation, I promise you every school is familiar with the IB and knows how rigorous it is. Now in terms of the grades, anything in the 6s and 7s are really good - One of my friends got into Columbia with a 43 IB total for example - but a 5 is still solid. I'd say it depends on where you want to apply to.
