The question isn't who is the smartest, it is who has the highest gpa, and a 3.1 is certainly not the highest.

technically, you're right but harvard gpa HAS to be weighted more heavily than a higher gpa at a less competitive school

*if it wasn't gut major

you think they aren't?


not just ivy league..take the most competitive/ hard to get into school in your state...and take the state college/uni.

you don't think a gpa from the first school is weighted more than same gpa from the other one?

High school is a total joke and most are weighted on a 5.0 scale.

They don't offer athletic scholarships, but you're insane if they don't lower their standards for certain athletes and then give them academic scholarships. Obviously they're not going to let someone like Derrick Rose, who couldn't even pass the SAT, in but they don't hold athletes as high as regular students.

this. the standards are no where near the same.

btw...the average gpa at Harvard the last time in 2009 was a 3.48. A 3.1 is like the bottom of the class. Don't compare that to Emeka Okafor's 3.8 from a state school or Matt Bonner's 3.96. Put either one of those guys at Harvard and they do the same thing. Hardest thing about Harvard is getting in.

You are kidding me right lol? A 3.1 isn't bottom of the class lol. There are a lot of people that don't even graduate, or fail out. Also, the curve at a school like Harvard is a 100x more competitive than at a state school. I know, I transferred from an easier school to a harder school. That 90-100%you are used to getting is now a 75-85. Also, his major was economics at Harvard. Not the type of major you take if you just are trying to skate by and hoop.

Granted he went to school in Palo Alto, so his high school was probably as hard as Harvard lol.

you are wrong. look it up. i know this isnt undergrad but just for a easy frame of reference ---Harvard Law doesnt even give out real grades anymore. It is either high pass/pass/low pass. Almost everyone gets a pass.
