First off, remember this kid is rich, so 1) He probably has a bunch of tutors helping him out and 2) His dad is rich and powerful, and the teacher could just give him good grades to get on the kids good side. The kid is probably a well known in his school, and teachers probably suck up to him for his father's autograph and ****.

I am pretty sure a 4.0 GPA is equivalent to having all A's in your classes, 3.0 GPA is having all B's in your classes...

I don't really recall what our grading system is like because I've just gone through percentage grades in high school, if I remember correctly, 50-59 is a D, 60-69 is a C, 70-79 is a B, 80-84 is A-, 85-89 is A and 90+ is A+.

I could be wrong, been a while since I saw a letter grade.

did you know Rutgers was originally invited to be an Ivy? hell the education you get at them is no better than even smaller schools like Middlebury, Austin College, and Trinity.

People go to Ivyleague schools because of the brand name. People who graduate get hired almost immediately. Job offers come flying at you once you graduate out of an Ivyleague school. You're more likely to be successful in getting jobs with an Ivyleague degree than say.. A degree from.. Syracuse.

every college is aware of the AP courses. and most colleges I applied to ask me to give my weighted and unweighted gpa. my 4.3 transferred to be 3.9. what you do is that you assume all the AP classes to be normal classes and then figure out the gpa. my 4.3 doesnt transfer to 3.4. think about this. if i take 4 AP classes and get an A in them and take 2 normal classes and get an A that would leave at a 4.667 gpa. so i got straight As. does this mean that it will trasnfer to be less than 4.0 because i have AP classes?

Every GPA is out of some max that is achievable. Good for you if your school considers your 4.3 to be equivalent of a 3.9. As it works out, only a small number of people can have a super high GPA (it's tough). But even fewer than that have a high GPA *AND* are national-caliber athletes on top of the grades. And even fewer happen to be millionaire son/daughters with hundreds of millions of dollars coming to them in inheritance whether they do any work or not. Jeff Jordan's gonna be one of those rare millionaire kids who have straight As and are top jocks also. So it's worth congratulating.

Props to your son, StarJordan...
It's not extra hard to maintain a 4.0 while playing Varsity,
but given the circumstance, I think I'd find it difficult.

If I were Jordan's son, I'd be one lazy, arrogant slacker,
with a propensity to spend all day, every day,
getting high, chasing girls.

I turned out that way anyway, but If I were Jordan's son,
@ least I'd be rich...
Still working on the rich part.
I'll get there.

Respect due to Jeffrey Jordan.
Go to an Ivy league school, if you can.
