So ive been reviewing these threads and seeing people posting gpa's and talking about their schools curve. the question i have is, does it matter what the curve at your school is for reasons other than keeping your gpa above a certain point for scholarships or other reason? really i only ask this because since ever school seems to use a differnt curve does gpa really matter? obviously students at schools that grade with a 3.2-3.3 curve have a distinct advantage of having a better GPA than students at schools with a 2.7-2.8 curve. so essentially someone with a 2.7 and a 3.3 could have performed equally well but have significantly different grades. Judging from this you would think class rank would be the only thing that really mattered but it seems like GPA plays an important role in getting jobs. it doesnt make much sense to me. maybe im wrong in my reasoning and understanding. if you could clear it up i'd appreciate it.
