Literally No One Can Figure Out How This Teen Ended Up With A 101.6 GPA
Major props to Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna, the 17-year-old from Elmont, New York, who was accepted into all eight Ivy League schools with a 101.6 grade point average.
Obviously, Augusta, valedictorian at Elmont Memorial Junior -- Senior High School, is mad smart. Like, I've probably never even talked to anyone as smart as she is in my whole life.
A local NBC station's report said Augusta was accepted into Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University. Honestly, that's awesome. Augusta's slaying, and it sounds like any of those eight schools would be lucky to have her.
But, the Internet, being the Internet, is fixating on the 101.6-GPA thing. What is this fancy, non-4.0 scale you speak of? The 3.8-ers over here on Twitter aren't used to the 100-point system, and the poor souls are so very confused.
The people are happy for you, Augusta. But, they are also confused.
Like, they are reeeeeaaaaallly confused.
It's just a little hard for them to grasp the concept of a different scale for GPAs.
There are people who think the 101.6 is on a 4-point scale, and it's really bumming them out.
How the heck is a 101.6 GPA even possible and I thought a 4.0 last semester was "good" https://t.co/2BJsEttrRU — Alexander Vinolus (@alexbrowns19) April 6, 2016
