Dear 100 Hour Board,
I understand that anyone who graduates from BYU with a GPA in the top 10% of his graduating class is distinguished "cum laude," 5% "magna cum laude," and 1% "summa cum laude." I was wondering what the cut off points were last December (2000) and last April (2001). i.e. what was the lowest GPA that got summa, magna, and cum laude.
To graduate cum laude the graduation requirements last December were to have a GPA of 3.80 and in April the GPA was 3.85. To graduate magna cum lade you were required to have a GPA of 3.88 in December and 3.91 in April. Finally, to graduate summa cum lade, last December you needed a GPA of 3.96 and in April a GPA of 3.97.
