Quick question- I graduated from a UC (UCD to be exact), and compared to some top notch schools- Ivy's and Stanford for example- your grades are lower due to grade inflation at those other schools. How does this fare for UC applicants? Is there some kind of levelling of the field, so that a 3.0 from a UC will hold the same weight as a 3.3 from, say, Yale? I was just told this by someone, who said that UC applicants can squeak by with SLIGHTLY lower grades because of not having the inflated grade policy (whatever that entails). I'm confused, can anyone straighten me out on this?
