I can easily see a .1 pt difference (easily accomplished when replacing a few As with A+s...) could mean the difference between an acceptance or a waitlist.

I think everyone's getting lost in that numbers-obsessed mentality again.  I'm sure the adcoms are well aware of the discrepancy between schools that give A+'s and those that don't.  I know everyone is desperate to do everything they can, but I'd be really surprised if this issue had any bearing on anyone's admission/rejection anywhere.

I remember a time when I was reviewing applications in a law admissions office, and someone had a re-caluculated GPA of something like 4.25.  Good grief.  I remember taking a second look at it and thinking, Whoa..

I wish that I could remember what this person's LSAT score was, just to make the rest of us feel better.  Let's just say that it was a 145 so we can sleep tonight, shall we?

An A- is a 3.67 according to the LSAC folks.  You can refer to this site to verify:  http://www.lsac.org/LSAC.asp?url=/additional-info/transcript-summarization.asp.
