has it ever been done? Sure, all one needs is straight A's, but it seems like with most majors that's simply impossible. Especially at the school I'll be attending next year (UW), i think it's literally impossible to maintain a spotless GPA. This is because you simply get grade points for each class, instead of a letter grade that's worth a certain amount of grade points. SO an A doesnt mean 4 grade points; A teacher might give a 3.8 for a 95%, and like a 3.9 for 97%.
