The 50th percentile is a little higher, and 3.48 is top 25% so a huge amount of people fall b/w a 3.2 and 3.5. I'm just curious on the finer distinctions between that 3.5 and 3.7.

You do understand that you just said that the 50th percentile is higher than 2/3 (66.7th percentile) of the class, right?

well the difference between an A- and a B+ is bigger than a B and a B+ by .1 so overall, the average gpa is higher than a 3.3. There are virtually no C+'s and A+'s to even it out (1-2 a whole term?), but there are plenty of B's and plenty of A-'s.

Ok, so you meant to say "mean" (average), not "median".
