I too was the valedictorian of my class. However my GPA was only a 3.83. My bother graduated 3 years earlier as the salutatorian with around 3.8. I don't know of any other classes around my age that had any 4.0 GPA's. My point here is that if a school has a bunch of 4.0 students... something is likely not be graded correctly. Not sure why our schools need to make the scale so that students need to always be able to get A's. I had several classes where no student in the class got A's... for years.
To summarize the points of contention:
- Is A+ = 4.33?
- If F+ = 0.33?
- What is F- worth?
- If you dislike the person is it okay to emphasize the third syllable and call the person the valeDICtorian?
- Is the salutatorian obliged to call the valedictorian, "El Conquistador" at all times?
- If there is more than one individual tied for valedictorian, must they rho-sham-bo for the honor?
Both are nice but dont always mean you will do well in college. Average HS students can become good college students and the best HS students dont always finish college.
This does vary from school to school but many of the schools that we visited were set up so that when you applied you were being reviewed for all available scholarships...no extra submission for the scholarship(s) was necessary.
