Does Olin care about the plus or minus after a grade? Or are all A+, A, A-'s counted as A's?

    Do you mean in high school, or at Olin? As for your Olin grades, it does go into your GPA. Otherwise, I defer to the admissions people. Olin was closed due to snow today, so (hopefully) they got the day off... :)

    I mean for admissions.

    I'd say if the plus and minus factor in to your GPA, then yes it would matter to Admission as they use your overall gpa as a factor in rating your application.

    My HS doesn't even do +/- grades. Bummer when you miss an A by 1/2 of a percent.... gets put down as a B.
