My goal is to attend dental school and GPA is critical. It doesn't seem fair that schools each have different scales. A 90 at one school might be an A, while a 90 at Pitt is an A-, thereby effecting GPA.
My son told me that only 40% of the class get A's and B's. Can anyone confirm this? His Honors Physics teacher told them - for that class it is actually to the students benefit but in others not.
I can't confirm that, but it wouldn't surprise me since most professors/departments that curve grades will curve to a C average.
