I am a sophomore right now, and was wondering how this whole A and A minus thing works. I might sound paranoid, but bear with me: a CollegeBoard website tells me universities rank A minus as a "3.7" GPA, not a 4.0.
Link to that: How to Convert Your GPA to a 4.0 Scale
But my school's transcript (I've seen a senior's) makes an A minus a "4.0". (for us, A- is 89.5% to 93.5%). My counselor tells me that the transcript only shows the letter grades, not the percentages.
If so, will my A- be a 4.0 still, or do colleges scale differently from certain high schools like mine?
Thanks for resolving this mystery.
