3.56 is not that good, and 1800 is equivalent to 1200 on the old scale, which wasn't that great either.  Don't know what this person expected. 

Her rejections are reasonable.

Are morals absolute? Maybe moral principles are. Maybe some sort of telos is absolute. But there are too many subjective vs. objective problems to unravel before we can really start answering this question. Also, there is some question begging before we get started, right? I mean the idea of "morals" is some sort of rule or guidepost. Either way, make it utterly transient and it is utterly contradictory. Really, what ppl mean when they ask this is . . . how intellectually honest are you about right and wrong??? IF you're really honest, then I'll call you immoral. IF you're really dishonest, then I'll call you shallow. If you hedge, I'll call you apathetic/a hedge-meister/or an unprincipled air breathing wanderer of the earth.

Truth: nobody knows.

Sometimes, this question is framed in even more brain bending ways, i.e. - is there absolute truth??? yikes
