I don't know, you'd think anybody there would be looking for a way to get out.

Love the GPA (3.98), but how is that 84 out of 292? In any case, hope his jumper is top of class.

I would guess advanced classes are 5 point A's, so the top 10 is probably around a 4.3 or 4.4 gpa (2d year of foreign languages, 2d year chemistry, 2d year physics, etc are 5 point A's, while first year are 4 point A's).

Exactly! Plus if he takes non-AP/pre-AP classes such as electives or, I don't know, basketball class, which don't carry the bonus points, even if he scores 100% in the class, such grades still dilute the GPA and impact class rank.

For a kid who is blessed with athletic abilities, it's not a big deal. He still gets the free ride. For a kid with only academic skills, it makes it really tough to deal with the quotas, i.e., top 10%, top 8% or the whatever the cut-offs are these days.

Yes, I have a senior who recently dropped from top 8% to top 10.5% because of drop outs or departures even though his GPA went up.

I understand. I have a kid who was a starter on both the varsity soccer and varsity basketball teams as a freshman and as a sophomore. She dropped both sports prior to her junior year because continuing would hurt her GPA. But she stayed with Division 1 soccer and AAU basketball until she graduated, then turned down D1 scholarships in both sports in favor of academic scholarships at a D3 school. It about killed me to see her drop high school sports to avoid having her GPA dinged, but I could understand it and accept it.
