Hard to get 3.8 GPA at Emory?

How hard is it get a 3.8 at Emory when you major in biology or chemistry?

Does the school have a lot of grade inflation or not?

Is the school's average GPA 2.7 like Georgia Tech or more like 3.4/3.5?

    its not too difficult to get a 3.8 GPA. I feel like the classes are not much different than AP Classes in high school. My freshmen year, I was able to make As in 300 level courses...the point is, if you do your work, go to class, pay attention in class, and study every day, you should be fine. A lot of people are not able to do as well as they hoped because they put off things till the last minute. So, that being said, have a rewarding school year. Oh, and vtoodler...i'm also from stl. Great city, huh?

    Econrobot, three questions:

    What classes are you taking at Emory? What High School did you go to? Are you a scholar?
  • econroboteconrobot Registered User Posts: 29 New Member
    Yes, I'm a scholar. I graduated from Marquette High School in Chesterfield. Currently, I'm taking upper level courses in women's studies and political science.
