nearly 80%" of those accepted had a GPA of at least 4.0
the Stanford news release that came out earlier this month stated "nearly 80%" of those accepted had a GPA of at least 4.0.
Actually, now that I think of it, a 4.0 UW may be rare enough that the statistic could be true.
Maybe the Dean used "straight A's" to mean 4.0 weighted? It sounds about right that 80-some percent of people with 4.0 weighted are accepted
Well maybe Shaw meant strait As as in no A-s? I know that in many schoos, A-s are still considered 4.0s.
