Hmm....the thing about GPA is, at least here, it's not staggered for each class, just overall.
So say you get 4 As, a 92 in each class.
At Scholl you walk out with a 4.0
At DMU you walk out with a 3.7
So no...it's not really comparable. I'm not saying one is better or worse than the other, I'm simply saying that this is why you can't really lend a whole lot of credence to a GPA, especially considering you aren't taking our exams, and neither are we taking yours, so you're comparing apples to bananas.
I don't really know where this came from, I wasn't trying to compare my school to any, I was just providing information about why I chose it, and why GPA isn't as important as class rank. It's a better comparison, I would think, to look at class rank, as a person in the top x% of a class is likely similar in knowledge and motivation as a person from another school with a similar rank, regardless of whether or not their GPAs match up.
