School Average GPA

Postby RedTop » Fri Aug 06, 2010 4:08 pm

In another thread, I posted that my girlfriend's school seemed to grade fairly harshly. She just got back her LSAC analysis of her transcript, and it showed the average GPA at her school was 2.94. When I was an undergrad at a moderately prestigeous college (Georgetown), my GPA of 3.01 put me at about the 28th percentile of my class - in other words, the average at Georgetown for my class was well above 3.01.

I'm wondering if others could share the average GPA from their schools (along with the name of the school) to get some perspective on whether 2.94 actually represents a school with a tough grading curve.

This can depend on major or school so its hard to say. The median for my college, for instance, was a 3.2, but the median for the entire university was significantly higher.
