My solution: everyone should just go to the same school.  That way it'll be easy to compare our GPAs.  :)
OK. As long as it's not in Southern California.

Harvard.  We should all be Harvard students.  :)

I went to the best prep high school in CA.  How do you account for my 2.06 college GPA?
Harvard didn't call me.  NO UC or CSU called me.  I went to the junior college which had free tuition.  My parents paid a stupid amount of money for my high school education, and I was on my own through college. Perhaps the latter move was a prudent decision on my parents part.   ;)

This is just my 2 cents, but I went to a state school in Utah, both because of finances and my commitment to the Utah National Guard.  I found that I always excelled in classes that were challenging, and had intelligent, insightful students, and did more poorly in classes that were directed toward the 'minimum standard'.  I graduated with a 3.7 from Utah State University, but I feel I probably could have done the same or even better at a school like Harvard, where I would feel challenged and stimulated to push myself.  That's what the LSATs for anyway, to get everyone on an even playing field.  That's probably why law schools don't emphasize grades that much.

That's a good point.  Even though you're an Aggie.  I'm from UCI, so we're your basketball (and other athletics) rivals :)
