That's absurd. What is an A-? Are you sure it's not B+ is 3.25 and A- is 3.75?

Even that is stupid.

I'm pretty sure that's how UCF does it, which is one of many reasons why I didn't go to UCF.

My school had B+ at 3.5 and A- and 3.75. We don't have an A+
There isn't a grade I hate most in this life than a B+. Oddly enough I love A-s because it shows you're smart enough yet not perfect.

No A- or A+ grades. No - grades at all, I don't think...

And yup, I'm sure. It's why my LSAC GPA is a bit lower than my institution GPA. Gotta love dat grade inflation.

So there's a .5 gap between a B and a B+?

God that's awful. LSAC would recalculate those both as lower numbers in the GPA they send to schools.

Yeah, but I hope you appreciate how freaking awesome it is that you don't have to worry about -'s. The difference between an 84 and an 83 at my school is a big one.

Oh trust me, I do. :)

ETA: Until law school, in which my enjoyment of the luxury of grade inflation will inevitably end...

Yeah, I rarely got outright As, but lots of A-s. My GPA would be lots higher if my school didn't have +s or -s. Of course, it would have been higher if I hadn't taken multivariable calc, or if I had gone to my Art History class, or.....

Hmm. I never thought about how many minuses I got. MAF? I think so.

Yeah I've always found that getting Bs/B+s requires so disproportionately less work than getting As

True. A's require a hell of a lot more.

Then again, I've become awfully reliant on all this amazing vegan food and reasonable coffee...


I can't speak to the availability of vegan food, but as to reasonable (and good) coffee, St. Louis has it. Kaldi's is a local phenomenon, and their roasts are fantastic. We have a lot of independent roasters here that make small batches of fresh coffee. So, in summary, St. Louis brewers and coffee roasters are excellent. Also, there are many ethnic food joints, and everything from good pizza to fancy dining.

True. B/B+ is "I showed up for the most part and did my work." A's require a hell of a lot more.

And suddenly it becomes apparent why we're all splitters.
