(1) general PSA - every school has a different curve. With the exception of Northwestern As are always rare and to be celebrated, but otherwise some schools curve to a 2.7 or even lower (meaning a B- is a middle of the pack or even above average grade) and others curve to more like a 3.3 (meaning a B- is a bottom 10% kind of grade). A lot of these replies seem to miss the fact that what would be bottom of the barrel at one school is quite respectable at another.
(2) lol at all of the alts being created for this thread. 'tis the season.

Ummm... and there's that. Sorry.
(3) In my experience, scotch is the answer to this problem.
