No need to scream bloody murder here. I am fully aware that there are small tier three schools that force kids to work hard. I am also aware that there are large state schools that let kids coast. No general assumption here, merely a question. It just so happens that I know alot of people at other schools with 3.8's that do nothing and would not be considered highly intelligent people, not saying that is the case every where. And as far as prestigious colleges inflating grades, UofC is particularly known for its lack of inflation among the top tier schools.
