Truth is truth. How profound.
Why not just show us the data that you have, and how it supports your statement about how there are thresholds with grades? A reminder, you said the following:There are threshholds in grades. The first is 2.5, then there's 3.0, 3.2 (that's a really important one b/c is a B+ average on a 4.0 scale) and then there's 3.5 and 4.0, of course.
So show us how the data supports that rather than the simpler explanation that the higher the GPA, the better the chances of admissions. Remember, to demonstrate a threshold, you need to show that someone just above a threshold is significantly better off than a person just below it.
Remember: I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just pointing out that you're reading more into your data than is warranted. Unless of course you have more than I suspect. Go ahead, show us.
You know good and well that I am right. You are deep in flame territory, b/c you are saying essentially what I am saying. Ask anyone what a 2.9 GPA means for someone's admission, and they will ask, "Can you get it up to 3.0?" That's the first thing anyone thinks. You are str8 flamin'.
