I guessing that it might be a little higher than that...maybe top 15-25%. It's just a guess, and I wouldn't be surprised if I was wrong. Remember, 50% of the students will theoretically be between 2.75 and 3.25, but, as you go up the grade ladder there is a lower and lower percentage who make a given GPA relative to the class.

The grades are not necessarily distributed evenly, i.e., it isn't a given that exactly 25% of the class must be 3.5+. They could be evenly distributed, but they don't have to be. At a school like UVA, it may be that only 15% of the class getys above 3.5, in which case, it would be possible for a 3.4 student to be higher up on the food chain.

OP is basically a 3.4. Believe it or not, that's a fairly high GPA at some schools.

OP, you're probably around the top 37%.

Anyone else who is curious about this sort of question, there's a calculator here:

Obviously you don't go to UVA. Top 25% is a 3.48.
