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.
