I realize like one poster mentioned that it can be used as a general excuse, but there is nothing more infuriating than having professors who think it's alright to make their students work extremely hard and then on reward 3-5 students with a B+/A- grade. This was the case for a lot of my classes, even in upper levels courses in an Honours BA program where the majority of the students were capable and hardworking.
I never fought it at the time because it felt normal but since I've found TLS I've become extremely jealous. I remember seeing a post that had a chart of average GPAs at American UGs and seeing public schools with 3.5 avg GPA?! My school doesn't publish its average graduating GPA on the transcript report nor on its website, but I'd be interested to see the average graduating GPAs from all Canadian schools to compare them to one another.
So best of luck to you McGill alumni! I didn't go there but the grade deflation there is well known
It seems that US schools may take this into account, as I just got into NYU with a measly 3.3
Congrats! Can I ask for your LSAT?
