The purpose of grade point average is to tally your actual average against the max anyone could have scored; not whether you took differential equations in senior year. That's what the transcript is for. If your school operates under a 5.0 scale and you have a 4.3, then your cumulative GPA on the 4-point scale is a 3.4. If your college admission form asked for GPA, and you entered 4.0+ without stating that its out of 5, you'd be misrepresenting.

*yawn*

I'm more successful then you clown. Your life revolves around another human being who breaths, eats, sleeps, craps just like you. He entertained you and you were left with a permanant hardon that wont cease to remain stiff! You're so bugged out that the person who entertained and mind phucked you silly you care about thier kids and how well they are doing. You're starting to become a psycho. A uncontrollable fanatic. You'd probably kill to sniff MJ's UNC shorts "Mmmmmmmm *strange giggle* his airness!". Phuck outta here!

Then I'm going to infer that either you don't know what you are talking about or your school doesn't have much going on. Of course endowments matter. The quality of facilities available, the level of world class faculty you can afford, the kind of research and development you can pull off, the caliber of dorms, health services, the caliber of labs, the stadiums (in sports), the libraries, class rooms, conference rooms, the kind of technology available for connectivity across university campuses, the number of machines, the kind of machines all get affected by the amount of money you have at disposal.

if Harvard vs State Community College yes, an endowment matters, but when you are talking a large university like Rice vs Harvard, it doesnt matter as much. give it up, you dont know what the hell you are talking about.

you don't go to harvard over rutgers because Harvard gives you a better education, you go because all the other students are on average a lot smarter than the average rutgers student, and this is supposed to influence you positively or some crap like that. I go to rutgers so I don't believe any of that ****. If you have the drive to succeed you will do it regardless of whether your friends are smart or not. It's also pretty common knowledge that the difference in "quality of education" between most 4 year year universities and those select group known as the "elites" is pretty nominal. It ain't like they're teaching us geometry while ivies are teaching them complex differential equations

well also it depends on what program you are going to school for. if you want a badass music program, you can got to North Texas. You want kick ass engineering, go to Texas A&M or UT Arlington. it works taht way all over for different programs. Star doesnt get that though. he only sees a name.

too bad his idol got second billing to a cartoon rabbit.
