Scholarship gpa requirements…how hard is it?

Scholarship gpa requirements…how hard is it?
« on: March 14, 2006, 06:58:14 AM »
All the scholarships I received have GPA requirements of about 3.0, does anyone know how hard it is to maintain that?  Sounds easy but if it’s a curve is it possible that only the top 3rd or ½ would be above 3.0?  Is this school specific and if so where do you find this information?

I believe that there is definitely some variance between the curves at various schools, so the best way to find out is to just ask. The curve information should he available on each school's website.  If not, just go to an admitted student's day and ask, or ask a student through the admitted student's section of the school's website or something similar.  FWIW, per my student guide at BU this past weekend, their 1L curve is centered on a B+ and ost upper level classes are centered there as well with a select few centered at A-.
