I always hear about the necessity of 'good grades' as the number one prerequisite to admission at any college, especially the Ivy League and top 25 schools. But what really are good grades?
For some, getting an 88+ is pretty good. For others, a 97, one point short of an A+, is death. I always keep hearing about the importance of good grades, and this year, my grades are kinda slumping (went from having all A's to grades in the mid-to-high 80's in 3 of my majors).
But the question remains, what are good grades? Anything above an 80? 85? 90? 95? Only 98-100's?! I'm really referring to the top 30 schools in general with this (not just HYPS or something).
Although I'm kind of expecting the usual CC 'anything under an A+/A is horrible' thing with this thread...
