This depends on your school and is because once you go over their 75th, more points are ~ useless. This is why Harvard values 177 (at their 75th) more highly than 176 while GULC would not distinguish between the two.
Not really. Go look at 177 vs. 176 vs. 175 on LSN for Harvard. There's really no measurable difference in admissions outcomes at comparable GPAs, barring maybe 1 or 2 outliers.
I think that's true this year, but wasn't the case in previous years. If you look at last cycle's LSN applicants, it looks like 180s were given enormous leeway (I think there was a 3.6/180 from Berkeley that got in).
