I have seen mentions in other posts that schools *may* place emphasis on the difficulty of an engineering degree when evaluating the UGPA. I believe someone even quoted Northwestern's adcom as saying a 3.3 engineering GPA was equivalent to something like a 3.8 non-engineering gpa. My question is, how likely is it for this same 'increased' interpretation to be used if you have, say, a 3.92 engineering GPA? Is this boost more of an equating for people with low GPA?
Anything to compensate for a 162
