    me, too...I'm in the same boat as twinkletoes23. You don't have to list the APs for me, I'm just interested in your GPA and major/school. Thanks a bunch!

    Since you guys don't know who I am and lots of people are curious, I'll just post it here: (if you guys have any questions, just PM me)

    I was expecting a 3.5 and was very lucky and ended up with a 4.0.

    Im in Pratt:
    schedule:
    math 103
    chem 23
    econ 55
    Egr 53

    I really did not expect a 4.0... I partied on Wed, Fri, and Saturday nights and while I worked pretty hard the rest of the time, I never expected all As. My exams carried me, and brought both chem and math to an A.


    Honestly, I thought EGR 53 was really easy (nice job Dr. G), econ was decent, and I felt chem and math were pretty difficult (partly due to curve and competition with premeds).

    I was prepared for and satisfied with a 3.5 and didnt think anything of it. There is no grade inflation at Duke as far as I can tell and courses (esp at the intro level) are weed out courses.

    I hope this helps. First semester was a ton of fun, and I wouldnt place grades over having fun, although your parents wont agree.

    Wow we had the same classes except for econ this semester. I took Chinese 170 instead.
