<p>Is it like high school where there is an unweighted and a weighted GPA?
If some classes are weighted more than others, how can you tell?
Is it by concentration level (e.g. 1xx vs 3xx)?
Are honors classes weighted any differently than non-honors courses?
At my high school, a person who got a 100% got the same GPA for the class as the person who got a 89.6%. Is it the same at UMD (e.g. are there different GPA values for an "A+" and an "A-")?</p>
<p>Oh, and did anyone not take ENGL393 because they got an "A" in ENGL101, despite it being strongly recommended? Because I barely missed the sat score required (660 instead of 670), so I figured I have a decent chance at getting an "A" and I REALLY DO NOT want to take more English than I am required to do.</p>
