    To my cyber-predental buddies:

    Is it true that some schools (or all maybe) add a little to applicants' GPAs from big-time schools like Harvard and UCLA? And maybe take a little bit off from applicants' GPAs from a low tier school or a community college?

    Too many questions? I know, I know...

    Sorry... and thank you!

    Whether or not they "add" or "subtract" points off your GPA is uncertain (they would never admit to it), but it is clear that coming from a Top 25 school (by the way Harvard is a BIT more prestigious than UCLA) with a lower GPA is not the end of the world, they take this into consideration. Coming from schools like the Ivies, Northwestern, Rice, MIT, Notre Dame, UVA, Berekley, U. Michigan, UCLA, Emory, etc., etc. with lower GPAs (3.0-3.2) is better than having a degree from a CC or a lower tier long as you have good test scores.
