What rank in your class should you be to get into Princeton University in New Jersey?

You should be at or near the top of your class.

It's impossible to be more specific, because admissions is not an exact science. Admissions officers balance and weigh a number of different factors. Moreover, the significance of your class rank depends on where you went to high school. Being near the top of your class in a large school with a good reputation means more than being at the top in a small, unknown school.

it means you have all low a's.

Answer

You may have equal proportion of A's and B's. 3.5 is considered to be good.

3.5 is a great GPA that means you have all a's and b's

In other words, it's a A- or B+. That makes more sense to me.

If you do not count honors, 3.5 is either A- or B+. Some schools specify what a 3.5 is. In terms of grade, 3.5 is a great GPA.

Sororities and Fraternities

What are the sororities and fraternities at Princeton University?

For many decades, fraternities and sororities were banned at Princeton University. Institutions called the "Eating Clubs" came to fill that niche, with membership, houses, and initiation rites, however, they had no connection with the national Panhellenic system. Their initial function was to provide food services to the undergraduates at a time when the University did not. They also offered some housing and social functions. In the early 1980s the national fraternities began to appear on campus. Now the three panhellenic sororities are: Pi Beta Phi, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa Kappa Gamma. There used to be a Dela Delta Delta chapter but they closed in 2005.

What does a 2.75 GPA mean in terms of grades?

Original Answer

"A 4.0 is a perfect GPA. A 2.75 would be around a 69 average." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That is false. A 69 (assuming a non +/- scale) is a D. A grade of D earns you a GPA of 1.0, so a "69 average" or "D Average" would give you a GPA of 1.0 A grade of B will earn you 3.0 GPA points, so if you averaged a 2.75, that would be slightly below a B average.

If you were to break it down into individual percentages (i.e. your cumulative average grade in all of your classes) it would be between an 82 and 83 average.
