# 90~100 = 4.0 right?

<p>is having a 90~93 the same as having a 4.0?
will the adcoms see it like that?
or is the 4.0 worth more then the 90~93?
because the 4.0 means its perfect and a 90~93 means that there could be improvment.</p>

<p>90-93 is probably 3.67 or so-- A- average.</p>

<p>WOW...so a 4.0 is straight 100s? I don't know how it works either...my school grades out of 100.</p>

<p>I wouldn't know for sure since my school doesn't do GPA's, but typically, if A+'s aren't possible at your school, then most likely 93-100 or 94-100 is a 4.0 unweighted and a 90-93 is 3.7ish. For weighted w/AP or IB classes, add 1.0 to that. </p>

<p>Each school is different, so why not go ask your guidance counselor for the exact details at yours?</p>

<p>4.0 often isn't perfect, even on unweighted scales. The theoretical maximum unweighted GPA (perversely, someone at my school once accomplished this) is a 4.33 on many scales-- that is, straight A+s.</p>

<p>Wow fiddlefrog, what qualifies as an A+?</p>

<p>beth why are you still up? why am I still up? Oh yes- cuz I stopped sleeping like 3 weeks ago.</p>

<p>My school counts anything from a 90 to 100 as a 4.0.</p>

<p>in my school an A is 4.0 and A- is a 3.65
we have no A+</p>

<p>under your system I'd have a 4.0--> I've gotten two A-'s once in eighth grade math and once in tenth grade math. and it sucks because they were both 94s and under most systems a 94 is an A :mad: :(</p>

<p>Well it's entirely possible (probable?) that Yale will "deflate" my GPA. I hope not, though.</p>

<p>i hope they just inflate mine:)</p>

<p>Anything A- and up is 4.0 here.</p>

<p>Now I feel my school is harsh:</p>

<p>95-100 = A = 4.0
91-94 = A- = 3.7</p>

<p>A+ doesn't exist here.</p>

<p>90-100 is an unweighted 4.0 at my school as well.</p>
