lol, definitely grade inflation. My school curved to a 3.0.
Damnnnnnnnnn. That's crazy. NU doesn't rank either, I guess I never realized how beneficial that is.
Yeah, my GPA would look terribad at NU but I finished pretty well and I put my GPA and class rank (by percentile) on my resume. I think the guy at the top of my class graduated around a 3.7 or 3.8.
so basically I think the credited response is put "top third (GPA ____)." Then there's some context for the numbers.
