    I was reflecting on my summer semester grades, and the thought came to me that having a 4.0 gpa is like being a virgin... once you lose it you can't go back. With a little more focus in my younger days I could have that golden 4.0 and feel all warm and fuzzy right now... ah well. Good luck to everyone still taking finals!!!

    Don't some schools give more than 4.0 for an A+?

    Maybe that's like DO grade replacement? :)

    My university does not have/give A+ grades... :(

    ~from the perspective of someone who has lost it. . .yeah; but while you're still holding on to it, there's no itch to lose it :D Then, it's more like standing on the mound staring down at home-run derby all-stars who want to bust up your perfect game.

    :( Mine gives A+'s but they only are worth 4.0

    But they still look cool on your transcript. :D

    The only real problem is the loss of your virginity, followed by an itch.

    I thought the analogy was going to be that people who have them are boring... but what you said works too...

    I think honors classes carry a higher weight for an A. So theoretically, that would make it possible to re-virginize.

    The only problem is that AMCAS will never give you more than 4.0 for a grade when they standardize your GPA. So this is more like the "saying your a virgin" than the "getting a surgical hymen reconstruction" type of re-virginizing. The only example I know of for the later would be if you lived in Texas and took advantage of their Fresh Start program and then only applied to Texas med school.

    AACOMAS also does not give you above 4.0 for A+s

    No, but they can eliminate all of your old grades so you start fresh.

    I guess I'm just confused:

    If you graduate without ever earning anything but an A (or A+ apparently) doesn't that pretty much assure you also graduate a virgin?

    Thus as the OP posited: a 4.0 is like being a virgin :)
