GPA

Hi there,
what do you think can be considered a high GPA? 3.60 upward? Or 3.70? Or what? I've a Bachelor (in Italy) in Anthropology, with an estimated GPA of 4/4 for the first three years and of 3.72 for the last two. Do you think I will be above the average in each school I'll apply? Is my second GPA high as well?

One more thing: do you know where I can find reference books for converting international grades into American GPA?

thanks!

RC

I'm probably not the best person to answer this question, but at first glance your respective GPAs are quite high--seems higher than the average reported at the top US business schools.

I'd ask Stacy Blackman about your second question on how to convert international grades.

Good luck!
