I usually just go off what their transcript says...do you not have to ask for those?

And as someone who was a HORRIBLE standardized test taker, I practically could have have been the 4.35 with a 21 ACT. It happens.

But I totally get what you're saying about weighted GPA's!

ETA: This is how I see standardize test questions!
