if you think those are hard wait till you get to a university.

i never did anything in highschool and i still came out 3rd of my class with a 4.5GPA i got to a university and i flunked out because i was too lazy to do the work and go to class. so now i go to a community college for a degree in nursing then i'll be going for my bachelors

Thats the main reason why I dropped honors Physics.. AP, our equivalent to honors isnt weighted... and some of the colleges around here look primarily at the gpa and less at the classes... meh, you go to a nice sounding school than it sounds lol.

W00t for the fostering of mediocrity.

I think some schools just do it differently, honors classes are like 4.0 gpa for us if you get a 100, I believe.
