i think gpa is more of a measure of effort, rather than intelligence. it is such a pet peeve for me when people are assumed "smart" or "dumb" in terms of their grades when they shouldn't be. luckily colleges acknowledge this fact and take in other factors like test scores, and extracurriculars

GPA really isn't everything. For example, you can have a 4.0 GPA on a 4.0 Scale, but only take easy classes like home ec. but you can have someone taking hard classes and getting a 3.9. According to strict GPA, the first student is better. Some schools have weighted GPAs, but mine doesn't which is disappointing. Don't judge a person by their GPA.
