How important is your GPA for grad school admissions? I study in a very competitive college (top 3 in physics) and, for most classes, even though grade inflation exists, getting an A+ can be extremely hard (top 5%) and require substantially more work than getting an A (which isn't that hard). Do grad school admissions actually care if I have a lot of A+ in my transcript? Or is it just how I have read: the GPA is just a threshold, and the difference between A and A+ will not make any difference in my overall application? Appreciate your inputs!
