    Does anyone know which schools look at your overall grades with and without plus and minuses? I only ask because it actually makes a big difference in my overall grades (for the better w/o minuses and pluses) and aadsas actually calculates it both ways.

    I know that CWRU is one of them that looks only at without + and -


    thanks

    I was told that they completely ignore the "without + and -" calculations, since it doesn't completely represent the efforts of an undergraduate.

    I actually went to CwRU and talked to Brian, one of the admissiones persons. He said that they look at the without + and - only. If there is any other info about this, please let me know...

    Brian is new to the admissions scene ( he has only been working in the admissions office for two months now). I received exactly the opposite information, so perhaps he got confused?

    To answer your original question, I'm not sure of which schools who only view that GPA catergory as such.
