    the average GPA of students who completed the post-bac program (1 year program) last year was a 3.9 (NOTE: i don't mean the average UG gpa.. i mean the average pre-med gpa, after finishing the program!)
    wtf???? that seems ridiculously high . it's also a small program, so there can't be any gross outliers. thoughts?

      I didn't know Yale had a post-bac program; at least its not written about much on here

      Plus, some of the Ivies are infamous for grade inflation so some of the GPAs from some of them should be taken with a pinch of salt

        its not an ivy post-bac program. you think grade inflation is more likely the answer than a class full of gunners/smarts? (i think so too, just clarifying)

          I think its prob a combo of smart folks and grade inflation - i'd be interested to see which program it is though as I don't know many that provide avg GPAs of people within the program
