What does "GPA on a 4.0 scale" mean (weighted or unweighted)?
Answered

I've seen the term thrown around a lot on college websites, prep blogs, and common data sets. I'd have a hard time believing it isn't weighted, but particularly on the CDSs they always top out at 4.0 (but have almost everyone achieving it, particularly at more competitive schools). So which is it? It seems like a ridiculously commonly used term for it not to have an established meaning.
