I think that the majority of colleges have +s and -s and, anyway, it has just as much a chance of helping you as hurting. I'm loving those A+s I got in garbage courses like "Statistics for Business Majors" and "Astronomy for Liberal Arts Majors" (not exact titles, but you get the idea) and sadly it had the opportunity to help with a B+ too.

You should be more worried about the actual curve - a 4.0 in Communications at the crappiest college you can find is better than a 3.8 in EECS at MIT, even if one has a curve centered at 3.95 and is based on halfwits, while the other is centered at 2.5, with competition against some of the smartest out there.

CLS '10

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

     Thank you all for your help!
     
     I've decided to enlist in the U.S.M.C (UNited States Marine Corps).

     To all of those still in high school do not let ANYONE tell you what you should/ should not do. Do however, take into consideration the advice.

     Good Luck!

The LSAC's conversion chart is very generous.  A 93 as an A?  Come on.  Besides they also credit A+s and highest passing grades.  Going to a school with +s and -s only helps you, because it gives you a chance to get above a 4.00. 

my college had + and - grades, but it didn't have an A+ grade.
