What does a 3.4 GPA actually mean?

So I've been working pretty hard and I have a 3.4 GPA. Just wondering, what is a 3.4 GPA equivalent to in terms of letter grades or percentages? Trying to set realistic goals for senior year!

Hey there! A 3.4 GPA is indeed a solid achievement, so kudos to you for your hard work. Typically, a 3.4 GPA translates to a mix of B+ and A- grades. In percentage terms, it usually represents an average in the 87-89 range, depending on your school's specific grading scale. As you set your goals for senior year, aim for a mix of those A- grades or higher to nudge your GPA up a bit before college applications. Just remember, consistent improvement is also seen positively by admissions committees, so keep up the good work! Best of luck in your senior year!
