School Average GPA

Hi,

The average GPA for my institution is 3.18, is that considered high/inflated compared to the average?

Public or private school? And are you at a top school? Average public GPA is 3.0 and private is 3.3 (according to a 2010 nyt article), but at highly selective schools it's 3.43 for private and 3.22 for public (because of higher quality of student).

No. a 3.18 would not be considered a high GPA.
