Wake Forest and Grade Deflation

Pretty self explanatory thread here...I am just wondering about Wake Forest's reputation as being overly rigorous with its workload and ungenerous with its doling out of A's. Also is grade deflation prevalent there? i am a very interested Wake acceptee and would love to know! Thanks!</p>

<p>I've already commented on this before. People have said that the term "Work Forest" and grade deflation only means that you can no longer BS your way through school and get an A (like at my high school), you actually have to work to get an A. If you decide not to do work at Wake Forest, you will get a C- at best. I don't think grade deflation is terrible at Wake Forest (or if it even exists at all), you just have to work there like any other top school.</p>

<p>I believe if you go onto gradeinflation.com, you will see that Wake Forest's average GPA lags at about 0.1 from its peers. So, yes there might be a slight amount of grade deflation, but most of that occurs with the the Calloway Business School. I doubt it will impact you or any Wake Forest student that much if you're smart and hardworking.</p>
