This post is not to demote Steve Jobs or anything but it is out of just pure curiosity. I have heard that Steve Jobs had 2.65 gpa in high school yet still managed to get into Reed College. I don't know the application standard for reed during the time but currently the average gpa for applicants accepted are around 3.7 (Correct me if I am wrong). I believe that the colleges average acceptance gpa will not be different from today.
Then the question is how the heck did he get in? What talent did he had that made the college overlook his poor grade? I know that he is considered a genius but still !!
