The problem is that most of undergrad isnt graded on a curve. Because of this, a straight-up comparison can not be made between between Ivy UG and far lower-ranked schools. A comparison can only be made between schools that draw students of similar credentials. For example, you can say that Pomona College has inflated gpas as compared to Swarthmore but you cant say the same as compared to North Carolina Central.
(1) Dreadful Pomona trolling.
(2) I'm not sure what your argument is. Mine is that a person's perception of a grade is based not on how difficult it is to get that grade in the class where it was earned, but on the person's opinion of the school's quality.
(3) Curves have nothing to do with this.
