I think there's a little bit of .... emotional inflationary pressure in stats. You see someone with a 4.0, so your 3.8 doesn't feel as good, even though it is really quite decent. You see someone with 1500 vet hours, so your 750 looks skimpy, even though it's sufficient.
The mean pre-requisite GPA at my school for next year's class is 3.61. The mid-50% of 3.41-3.85. The mean cumulative GPA is 3.73, with a mid-50% of 3.59-3.89.
So for my money, a pre-req GPA of 3.61+ and a cum GPA of 3.73+ is "good". If my school is below average, I suppose you'd want to raise that a bit, and if my school is above average, drop the numbers a bit. You get the idea.
