No hard feelings, Cosmo Kramer.
As for your new question, I don't really know, because I'm not a member of an admission committee, but conventional wisdom on message boards such as this one says that schools do take your undergraduate university into account, in the sense that a 3.7 from a top institution may be looked upon more favorably than a 3.7 from an unknown place. Also, supposedly, a 3.7 in what is known to be a 'hard major' is better than a 3.7 in an 'easy program'. I don't really know whether any of this is true; I'm just repeating what I've heard. I've never heard of an "internal grading system", curious to hear if anyone else has.
