Not to mention the weighted GPA inflation. I mean, if a 4.0 means perfection, then why are there schools who have a fifth of their student body with above this magic number while their SAT is simply average? I mean, I just took a look at a nearby public university's incoming freshmen profile, and despite their average SAT being around a 1800, their freshman incoming GPA is about a 4.4, where it was about a 4.0 a few years ago, and their SAT did not change at all.
